HD-Vinyl 24/96 (DGG) Gustav Mahler – Symphony No.3 (Bernstein)

front-small-boxset
Many thanks to our friend Jean-Luc for this very rare live gem.
Leonard Bernstein more or less owned this symphony, and both this and his earlier Sony recording are superb. He was one of the few conductors who wasn’t afraid of the musical insanity that Mahler unleashes in the first movement (a collision between two marches of very different character), and the New York Philharmonic is one of the few orchestras in the world with the stamina to carry the whole thing off. This is the longest symphony ever written that’s in the international repertoire, but listening to Bernstein’s way with it, you’d never guess. –David Hurwitz

HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Columbia) Joseph Haydn – Symphonies 82,83,84,85,86,87 (Bernstein)

front-small-boxset
Many thanks to our friend Jean-Luc
In Bernstein’s hands, Haydn was a lusty fellow, filled with rollicking adventure. This is Haydn romanticized, with power and energy. The recording may be slightly reverberant, with a little lack of clarity in tuttis. However, this is certainly exciting Haydn and well worth to grab it.

Don’t be surprised by the not-as-good-as-normally quality of the sound – this is a Columbia recording from 1959. Philips, sonically ways superior than CBS, was here only the distributor.
When you hear to the 2nd mov. of Shostakovich’s concerto, don’t forget to breath…that beautiful it is.
