Mahler: Second Symphony - Baker, Harper; Klemperer. London, 1962
Listen to a Sample:
- Otto Klemperer, aged 78, leads an energetic and rapturous performance of Mahler's Second Symphony.
- Janet Baker sings the alto solos with passionate elegance, and Heather Harper's brief lines are nothing short of angelic.
- Although the sound is generally good, there are about two minutes of music missing from the last movement.
