Fritz Reiner conducts the Chicago Symphony with Lisa Della Casa for this
recording of Mahler's Fourth.
"Mahler's Fourth and Das Lied von der Erde were Reiner's only Mahler
recordings with the Chicago Symphony, and both are reminders of his orchestral
wizardry and his prowess as a Mahlerian. Tempos are on the swift side for a
piece many conductors like to linger over, but the forward flow doesn't obscure
telling details. Reiner gives the slow movement a chaste solemnity, and the
final heavenly vision is beautifully sung by the creamy voiced Della Casa. This
Mahler's Fourth falls closer to Boulez's objectivity than to Bernstein's
emotionalism and remains today what it was when recorded — one of the best
Mahler Fourths in the catalog. It's also one of the best-sounding, as RCA's
Living Stereo engineering holds its own even after decades." — Amazon.com
