HD-Vinyl 24/96 (DGG) Gustav Mahler – Symphony No.6/Kindertotenlieder (Bernstein)

Many thanks to our friend Jean-Luc for this very rare live gem.
This is truly one of the greatest albums in the pantheon of symphonic recordings. Bernstein made some exemplary recordings with the Vienna Philharmonic, several of them being Mahler works, yet something truly magical, truly cosmic and truly devastating happened when the VPO played this symphony under Leonard Bernstein. Unlike some of Bernstein’s other recordings in which his histrionic approach, his extreme tempi choices, and his extensive use of rubato can be jarring or distracting, in this work these qualities are entirely appropriate and seem to be organic and seamless.
