Notes and Editorial Reviews

"No one quite approaches Bernstein's account of [the third] movement in his recent New York recording for DG." -- Gramophone [8/1987]

"I sorely miss the fevered brow of Bernstein (DG)... [T]he Rondo-Burleske...could still be leaner and meaner a la Bernstein (DG)..." -- Gramophone [10/1992, reviewing other recordings of the Mahler Seventh]

"Bernstein (DG) had the right idea in treating [the first movement] more as a kind of Charles Ivesian collage—making a virtue out of anarchy, if you like. The symphony sounds more extraordinary in his hands." -- Gramophone [3/1996}

 The Mahler's Seventh: Bernstein goes to the point. August 2, 2013 By Veglio C. (Miami, FL) See All My Reviews "It is one of those occasions when Lenny gave a respite to Mahler in a performance. Great orchestral deployment, a lot of concentration and discipline that I can only compare to the Fifth (DG). Is the final Seventh? I think not, but this recording of Leonard Bernstein and New York Philharmonic is very close." Report Abuse
