The now legendary, 60 year old Charles Adler studio recording with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra of the Symphony No. 3 by Gustav Mahler, has once again been re-issued with broad distribution to the general market, with sound restorations done by A. Z. Snyder in 2010. This pioneering interpretation has always been highly respected and recognized as one of the best and most idiosyncratic versions ever recorded. It set the bar for all other conductors to follow. Only seven days prior to this recording, Adler had conducted the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, alto Hildegard Rössl-Majdan, the Vienna Women’s Choir and the Vienna Boys Choir in a broadcast performance for Austrian Radio. Therefore with these forces completely rehearsed, he led this recording for SPA (a record label he co-founded), which was completed in one single day on April 27, 1952.

Because this was one of the very first recordings of this symphony, and of any Mahler symphony for that matter, Charles Adler had carte blanche over its interpretation, and took full advantage of that opportunity. The first movement in particular has a scope, a far reaching grasp, that has often been copied, but never quite matched. The inner orchestral movements clearly demonstrate why the Vienna Symphony Orchestra has always been considered one of the top ensembles in the world, with each section of the orchestra constantly setting the bar for the next to follow, particularly remarkable in the third movement. Alto Hildegard Rössl-Majdan provides a touching rendition of the setting to the text in the fourth movement, and the Vienna Boys Choir bring the proper angelic sound to the text in the fifth. In one of the slowest interpretations, at just over 26 minutes, of the final movement, Adler delivers a truly Mahlerian experience of one of this composer’s most inspired moments. The extended crescendo that begins at the 24:15 mark is simply astounding in its control and dynamic power.
