Leonard Bernstein conducts the Concertgebouworkest Amsterdam for this audiophile pressing of Mahler's First Symphony.
"This is the performance I have been waiting for. Twenty years separate it from Bemstein's earlier account with the NYPO - and if you feel as I do, you'll view it as a 20-year rehearsal period to bring the reading to full maturity. Bernstein's basic view of the piece has undergone very little change in the interim...n a sense, the piece sounds newer, and that's quite an achievement after 20 years...This is a great performance of Mahler's first brave symphonic essay, impressively caught on the wing by DG's production team. I'd say it was an almost impossible act to follow." -Gramophone

Symphony No. 1
1. Langsam. Schleppend. Wie ein Naturlaut. Im Angang sehr gemachlich
2. Kraftig bewegt, dock niche zu schnell - Trio. Recht gemachlich
1. Feierlich und gemessen, ohne zu schleppen
2. Sturmisch bewegt
