Bargain Box: Levine’s Mahler

Mahler 7 levine

James Levine had a good run of Mahler recordings in the late 1970’s to the early 1980’s, and even won a Grammy for the recording of the 7th. I also had the 5th, 9th and 4th for years, and have enjoyed these interpretations with the Chicago, London and Philadelphia Symphonies.

Sony has issued a barebones box set of all of Levine’s Mahler recordings for RCA. Levine did not record the 2nd or 8th at the time for RCA, and since they were not recorded as a whole collection, the sound can vary a bit. But these are great performances and at a bargain price, well worth getting.
