Mahler, Symphony No.9 in D major



Leonard Bernstein was the first conductor ever to record all of Mahler's
symphonies not only on disk, but also on video. The Mahler cycle was the
first project in the more than 20-year-long association between Leonard
Bernstein and Unitel. The leading Mahler interpreter of our time, Bernstein
recorded all of Mahler's symphonies between 1971 and 1985, chiefly with the
Vienna Philharmonic, producing a unique musical document and triggering a
major reappreciation of Mahler's works. "All Mahler symphonies, all Mahler
works for that matter, deal in extremes, extremes of dynamic, of tempo, of
emotional meaning. When it is bare, it's extremely bare, when it is thick
and rich, it's thicker and richer than anything in 'Götterdämmerung', and
when it is suffering it suffers to a point that no music has ever suffered
before." (Leonard Bernstein)
