Mahler: Das klagende Lied - Studer, Meier, Goldberg, Allen, Sinopoli

Gustav Mahler
Das klagende Lied
Cheryl Studer, Waltraud Meier
Reiner Goldberg, Thomas Allen

Philarmonia Orchestra, Giuseppe Sinopoli

Deutsche Grammophon CD 463 216-2

For my first post I choose a "minor" listening among Mahler's works.
Surely not to compete with the later "Das Lied von der Erde" for intensity, but worth hearing as the first steps of the great M. in shaping his musical world...
Sinopoli, even if not the best in sound recording, with his passionate and precise direction, and joined by four great soloists, makes Mahler's music (as always) a truly wonderful experience.
