Leonard Bernstein conducts the Concertgebouworkest Amsterdam & soprano Helmut Wittek for this audiophile pressing of Mahler's Fourth Symphony. Violin solo performed by Jaap van Zweden.

"The only similarity with the CBS record is the relative closeness of the microphone placing, designed to give the woodwinds maximum impact. Bernstein is at what some will take to be his most mannered in parts of the scherzo, but here and everywhere else in the symphony his conducting tellingly arbitrates between energy and leisure; and there is an agreeable congruence between Mahler's written tempo directions and Bernstein's own inevitably personal feelings about the music's pulses. In fine, this is Mahler shrewdly and sympathetically conducted by a fellow composer...So while you mull over the various alternatives...let me commend to you this original, ungimmicky, musically searching performance as a worthy addendum to any Mahler collection." -Richard Osborne, Gramophone
