Customer Review
Sometimes when listening to the Levine, it seems as though I were hearing Mahler for the first time when I was young. This is the mark of a great Mahler conductor... You can hear his feeling for opera in the recordings of these Mahler Symphonies, after all, Mahler himself was a great opera conductor.
