This is as fine a Mahler Second as I’ve ever heard. First and foremost, it is the best played performance I know of. Schwarz’s tempos here are not slow, but because of his tremendous control over his players nothing seems rushed, and his interpretive gestures give one the feeling of considerable fluidity.
