Great Performances - Bernstein Conducts The Finale Of Mahler 2

bernstein

Music PLN member Brandt Schneider shared this video today. There are so many things about this that are just simply superlative: Mahler's mastery of composition, Bernstein's embodiment of the music, the excellent performance quality of all involved, and more. I particularly was struck by the way the ascending motif at the 3:00 mark skillfully melts into the woodwinds as the piece takes it's last deep breath before the final chords of The Ressurection Symphony. I am also quite fond of Mahler's Ninth for completely different reasons.
