Another Solti/ Chicago fan . Tennstedt on EMI , Bernstein specially on DVD, and Nott . The few Karajan made are stunning and guilty pleasure the Inbal's from Denon, not top but just like a decent restaurant you go to from time to time .

Then there is the Maurice Abravanel who (I think) did the SECOND complete Mahler cycle after Bernstein. Abravanel brought Mahler and old Vienna to the heart of the American West, Mormon country, as the conductor of the second (or third?) rate Utah Symphony Orchestra. Some may call it Mahler on a budget. While not on the same tier as Bernstein/New York, Solti/Chicago, or the many recordings made with the Concertgebouw, or the London, Vienna or Berlin Philharmonic Orchestras; Abravanel and the Utah band can hold their own, playing with great sincerity, and effort; a great Mahler cycle for those who enjoy cheering for the underdog!
