Otto Klemperer's Mahler is invariably dry-eyed, yet urgent, a valuable corrective to the number of latter-day interpreters who would either self-indulgently wallow in the music's sentiment or, even worse, treat it as pure sonic architecture, as though it were pre-Schoenberg. If this 1967 reading of the Ninth sounds slightly detached by modern standards, if its expressive points seem slightly understated, it is nevertheless deeply engaged and masterfully controlled. Klemperer was beginning to slow down by this point in his career, and the tempos are just a hair on the slow side, especially in the two middle movements. But the old firmness of conception and rocklike steadiness are still there, even in the stormy weather of the Rondo-Burleske. The recording, made in Kingsway Hall, finds the New Philharmonia Orchestra in good form, though some of the wind soloists are a bit taxed by Mahler's exceptional demands. Two discs are necessary for the account, so to fill them out EMI gives us Klemperer's readings of Wagner's Siegfried Idyll and Strauss's Metamorphosen, both with the "old" Philharmonia Orchestra, both from 1961. Klemperer does the Siegfried Idyll with solo strings, the way it was written, and absolutely beautifully. There is a nobility and a sense of gravity to his reading of the Strauss that makes the piece deeply compelling without seeming in the slightest degree overwrought; the Philharmonia strings play it superbly. Surely this is the way Strauss intended the music to be heard. - Ted Libbey
