Leonard Bernstein conducts the New York Philharmonic for this recording of Mahler's Second Symphony.
Bernstein's second Mahler cycle recorded for Deutsche Grammophon involved recordings by orchestras closely linked to Mahler's compositional and conductorial output, including the New York Philharmonic. Mahler himself conducted the New York Philharmonic during a brief tenure between 1909 and his death in 1911.
Although there are many similarities between the first and second cycles, Bernstein's later conducting style is often slower and more heavily expressive than his more youthful approach in the 1960s.
