Notes & Reviews:
This rare gem from the archives of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra features a live recording with the great conductor Leonard Bernstein. Mahler was one of the composers that Bernstein focused on with great intensity in the last years of his life. This performance of Mahler's deeply emotional ninth symphony adds a new facet to our understanding of the special relationship between these two greats of musical history. The performance was recorded live at the Mann Auditorium in Tel Aviv in August, 1985.

Bernstein, one of the great Mahler conductors, presents the 9th Symphony with penetrating insight into its musical and emotional depth... the audience responded with an outburst of ovations which lasted for some 20 minutes, calling Bernstein back on the stage time and again.
Recording information: Mann Auditorium, Tel-Aviv, Israel (08/25/1985).
