IIRC, Mahler wanted a five-minute pause between the end of the first movement and the beginning of the second. So if the first CD has only the first movement on it, then you can wait for 5 minutes before playing the second, and you will have obeyed Mahler's instructions! ;-)
BTW, I'm glad you (EDIT: not you - I meant jdaniel!) like this recording - I've always felt that Jurowski is one of the best conductors of his generation, and he can speak pretty eloquently about the music he performs too.

Normally would take be at least 5 min. to find the CD case with the second CD in it so as to load it and hit play.
Mahler would be pleased with the long 5 min. pause I took between first and second movements.
"Thank you, Ivan!"
You're welcome, Gustav.
Oh, the Mahler 2nd? ;-)
Yes, of course I liked it!
As good or better than any I've heard, but you're asking the wrong guy here as I am only a recent convert to Mahler's musical world.
Only thing I would add if I could is the Mezzo from the above recording.
Have you heard this one?
Yes, I like the first Bernstein, and I was surprised at how similar it was to my ultimate fav, the 2nd Bernstein on DGG, which is better-recorded in '88. Columbia captured that low organ in the end too, though, surprising for Columbia! : ) That said, IMHO Bernstein is a bit "loose" in the first mov't, in both recordings.
And then there is this one! ;-)
Kaplan's Vienna Mahler 2 is a wonderfully recorded SACD that lets you clearly hear the poor ensemble and the bad soloists with excruciating clarity. More's the pity, it's one of the best multichannel Mahler soundfests that I know of.
and I got what I paid for. (Redbook CD version)
