Notes and Editorial Reviews

As part of Deutsche Grammophon's Mahler celebrations, they are offering a traversal of Bernstein’s DVD cycle. Compiler Alan Newcombe has put together a 120-minute single DVD that includes movements from each of Symphonies nos. 1 to 9 – almost like a mega-Mahler symphony rolled into one. It starts with the first movement of no. 1 and ends with the last movement of no. 9

Here is Lenny in all his glory, coaxing performances of rare passion and sensibility from the Wiener Philharmoniker.
