MTT understands Mahler however I think the decision of the SF Symphony to self produce is a mistake. I found the recording lacking depth and soundstage - a crucial element with Mahler where every instrunment is important in its own.

Thomas' reading of the "Ressurection" symphony in surround sound is powerful and overwhelming. The SFO is in great shape and pulls out all the stops easily without strain when necessary. Still, the quit passages are warm and lyrical. Made my eyes water!
