Mahler: Symphony No. 5

New York Philharmonic, Leonard Bernstein

The so-called 1960s “Mahler renaissance” was launched in New York by Leonard Bernstein, and his epoch-making cycle of the Mahler symphonies has remained a catalogue benchmark. As observed in 2009, “these first versions have lost none of their freshness or sense of discovery... they are irreplaceable, and incomparable.” Newly re-mastered as an ORIGINAL is Bernstein’s New York Philharmonic recording of the Fifth Symphony.
