    I started with the standard Conifer CD set but later got that deluxe set used with score booklet and
    media disc.....(we shall not mention the let down of his later WP recording on DG)



    I finally took the expensive plunge with the Zander 2nd on audiophile boutique label Linn, mostly because it has the best sound quality I have yet heard for M2, awaiting delivery from Presto UK......unfortunately not available for HD streaming on Tidal

    Zander ’s performance of the Mahler’s 9th is also excellent, not nearly mentioned enough on lists, and recorded in outstanding sound. He has a genuine feel for the composer.

    I edited the album art myself when I realised that they'd printed the cover back-to-front. Here's my version, with Zander the right way round:

    Sorry, I prefer the original album cover. Makes him look left-handed, which is stupendously superior

    Zander's Mahler 3 is immensely satisfying too. Actually, despite not usually enjoying these sorts of things, I did get a lot out of the third disc therein, his lecture/talk with musical examples.
