Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ever since the young Rafael Kubelik (1914-96) became acquainted with the music of Gustav Mahler - primarily through conductors such as Bruno Walter, Erich Kleiber and Fritz Busch - his fascination with it never again left him alone. He pressed forward with the Mahler Renaissance in post-war Germany against initially reserved public and critical attitude. As Music Director of the BRSO, he realized one of the first complete Mahler cycles. On 180g Virgin Vinyl, Mahler’s Third Symphony appears here in a live recording from the Herkulessaal, Munich captured on 20 April 1967.
