    Leonard Slatkin leads the St. Louis Symphony in a classic reading of Mahler’s 2nd Symphony, re-released as a Telarc Soundstream SACD.
    Review from Victor Carr Jr. at Classics Today (10/10 Sound and Performance)
    The CD version of Leonard Slatkin’s Mahler Second was a vast improvement over the original LPs, which, one critic complained, sounded as if “wrapped in fur”. Now SACD technology allows the full-bandwidth of the Soundstream original to be experienced in the home. Listening to the sound’s arresting clarity and bracing impact, it’s scarcely believable that this performance was taped more than 20 years ago. The massed strings’ imposing first note–impressive on CD–now lurches brazenly forward, commanding your attention. Instrumental groupings have a new solidity of placement as well as clearly defined individual lines–particularly so in the third movement, with its cross-cutting wind and string runs.
    But Mahler’s “Resurrection” has been called “the first audiophile symphony” primarily for its extreme dynamic range, particularly the tremendous climaxes in the fifth movement, which Telarc’s recording always handled quite comfortably; but now on SACD they resound with newly thunderous impact. In some ways this recording is even more impressive than Telarc’s recent Atlanta Symphony CD, which, though it has greater sonic amplitude (admittedly, the St. Louis recording requires a higher playback level), imparts somewhat less of that “you are there” feeling. Slatkin’s performance is superior too, as he uncannily combines Klemperer’s laser-focus with Bernstein’s visionary majesty, making for a truly moving and memorable interpretation, inspiring the St. Louis Symphony to offer one of its finest performances on disc. Possessors of the previous CD version most certainly should obtain this SACD, as should newcomers. Telarc’s 2-for-1 pricing makes it quite a bargain.
    Review from Laurence Vittes at Audiophile Audition
    Leonard Slatkin’s elegant Mahler Second, recorded in 1983 and now reissued on 2 SACDs (and sensibly priced as one), is a reminder both of how stunning Telarc’s Soundstream recordings were in the early days of the digital revolution (note the startling timpani blows, like cannon shots, at the beginning of the third movement) and how much they gain from SACD technology. Even without the benefit of a surround sound
    system, the SACD sound (recorded in Powell Symphony Hall) is notably warmer and richer while the sense of space remains impressive, the directionality exciting without becoming artificial, and the dynamic range awesome.
    Slatkin’s reading is an exercise, as much as a Mahler performance can be, in musical restraint, focusing attention on the orderly flow of events, proceeding as much as possible to the composer’s markings, rather than presenting them as a demonstration of audiophile brilliance (Solti with the LSO or Mehta with the Vienna PO, both on Decca), angst (Bernstein with the New York Phil, either Sony or DG), austere grandeur (Klemperer with the Philharmonia on EMI), or sheer beauty (Haitink with the Berlin Phil., on Philips).
    Texturally rich, and often exciting, Slatkin’s Mahler is worth hearing, especially at the reasonable price.
