Reviews For Mahler: Symphony No. 5 By Artist Chicago Symphony Orchestra & Daniel Barenboim


    By Azunai the Defender
    I am an insufferable Chailly fan when it comes to Mahler, but being an insufferable Barenboim fan in all else I had to try this. Wow, wow, wow, was I extremely pleasantly surprised. Orchestral quality aside (as both Chicago and the Concertgebouw are fabulous though I would have gone with Chicago back when this was recorded) the conducting of Barenboim was a match made in heaven by Mahler's fifth symphony. The enormous emotion and all-encompassing feeling of the symphony is perfectly and divinely exemplified here. The "sorrow march" of the opening is crisp and very much a march, but Barenboim maintains a wonderful sustaining quality of sound with Chicago that can be heard in very little other places. The climax of the movement is easily one of the best executed moments in music that I have heard. Ever. The next movement is Vehement and Stormy, it seems alive and thrashing until the "slow" (langsam) movement comes around and drags along moodily, darkly, and ever so darkly. The Scherzo is truly all encompassing, and Dale Clevenger gives us horns a good name and Mahler himself a run for his money in his EXTREMELY powerful and beautiful rendition of the obligatto part. Let us not forget the tuba, who I can actually HEAR for once. The adagio is divine, without any question about it. I would spend twice 9.99 just for that movement. And finally, and most importantly, the Finale MOVES. So often when I hear this movement I hear the same themes over, and over, and over and OVER, but no not here. In this miraculous interpretative work of art I feel like something is inevitably coming, the constant movement is an EXTREMELY refreshing change, and for once I enjoyed the rest of the movement as much as I enjoyed the ending of the symphony, which executed like no other. Truly the best recording of any Mahler symphony and my favorite recording of all time. Listen and FEEL the very spirit of the world itself!!!

Music is the art of arranging sounds in time to produce a composition through the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre. It is one of the universal cultural aspects of all human societies. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "(art) of the Muses"); see § Etymology and glossary of musical terminology.

Music can be divided into genres (e.g., country music) and genres can be further divided into subgenres (e.g., country blues and pop country are two of the many country subgenres), although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to personal interpretation, and occasionally controversial. For example, it can be hard to draw the line between some early 1980s hard rock and heavy metal. Within the arts, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art or as an auditory art. Music may be played or sung and heard live at a rock concert or orchestra performance, heard live as part of a dramatic work (a music theater show or opera), or it may be recorded and listened to on a radio, MP3 player, CD player, smartphone or as film score or TV show.
