Mahler: Symphony No. 5 - Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra; Leonard Bernstein

$ 5.00 $ 9.99

Bernstein, who related strongly to Mahler’s angst, demonstrated a visceral empathy with his music. His live Deutsche Grammophon recording of Mahler's Symphony No. 5, conducting the Vienna Philharmonic just a few years before his death in 1990, illustrates the power of his Romantic, emotive approach. Bernstein harnessed the impeccable technique and glorious sound of the Vienna musicians in a performance full of demonic excitement, sweeping tragedy and blazing climaxes, with the velvet sound of the strings used to poignant effect in the famous Adagietto. --Vivien Schweitzer, New York Times
