Notes & Reviews:

"...Music & Arts isn't kidding when it tells us that these performances were remastered in 1998 "from the best available sources." The live sound is great, considering its age...this is a fabulous collection: an orgy of great music interpreted greatly...There is an unfair tendency, particularly in America, to regard Bernstein as the conductor who single-handedly brought Mahler's music back to life..." -Tuttle, Fanfare

Originally offered as a belated tribute on the centenary of Dimitri Mitropoulos's birth, this collection presents some of Mitropoulos's finest performances of Mahler, one of his favorite composers (he premiered the Mahler Sixth in America and died while rehearsing Mahler's Third), drawn primarily from the 1960 New York Mahler Festival. The original booklet essay has been replaced with a note by UK critic Tony Duggan. Originally issued in 1995 with same number; reissued 2011 in re-designed digipack with new booklet; audio unchanged.

Sunday Times
The playing has a lacerating intensity... in rhythmic incisiveness and clarity of texture, in fluidity of tempo, in naked emotional power, he is an ideal Mahler conductor.
