RE: But what about the other 399 Out Takes?

That's not too far off the mark! For the 95 minutes of the album, the session spanned four days at an average of 5 hours every day. Actually, the first day with the alto and choruses, it was closer to 7 hours. Then they played the same program, plus a Mendelssohn "Italian" that night. Couldn't do that in the USA!

Since storage is cheap now, the recorders run almost constantly, with media markers used to denote Take numbers. All told, there's something in the neighborhood of 15 hours of recorded Mahler 3 music, with three complete takes of each movement, plus numerous patches. The offstage posthorn player nearly needed to be carried out of the hall one night.
