35 of 36 people found the following review helpful By Mr John Haueisen VINE VOICE on August 5, 2010
Format: DVD
"Why would they make a DVD of one movement from each of nine Mahler symphonies?" That's what my buddies were saying about this recording. The answer is the same as the answer to a question that was asked more than a century ago: "Why does concert attendance skyrocket whenever Gustav Mahler is conducting?"

The conductor is just that good!

Leonard Bernstein, as Mahler had done before him, strives to understand the composer's intent, and seems to want the orchestra and the audience to share in his personal celebration of the beauty and intricacies of the music.

A few quick things to mention:

All of the performances here are Bernstein conducting the Vienna Philharmonic except for Symphony 2 with the London Symphony featuring Janet Baker in the Urlicht. They are in DTS 5.1 and PCM Stereo.

Watch Bernstein in the first movement of Sym 1 and you can't miss his joy in the music.

The second movement of Sym 4 offers the most measured, precise and controlled performance of this movement--the most constrained Lenny you'll ever see.

In the movement IV of the Seventh Symphony, Nachtmusik II, Andante amoroso, we see and hear the delightful and rare appearance of guitar and mandolin in a symphonic piece--and Bernstein makes sure we can hear them!

I apologize for the following sugary phrase, but those who want to see it will see Lenny's frequent wincing at the ineffable beauty of the theme of the Mahler 5 Adagietto. Sorry, I just don't know how else to put it. It's almost painfully too beautiful to endure. As Strauss says in his presentation of the rose duet from Der Rosenkavalier, it's a feeling almost too strong to endure.

Whoever imagined the gift that would be offered to each of us by an example of Leonard Bernstein conducting just one Movement from each of Gustav Mahler's Nine Symphony invented a new vivid means of recognizing his intimate knowledge of every nuance, tempo, and personal emotional response to the music as a whole, as well as his ability to convey each internal feeling to the symphonic musicians reflecting that passion. I have, besides
LP's and CD's of a wide range of his Conducting, including music he composed, many DVD's ranging from instructing student performers about interpreting and playing Shostakovich, to a quite remarkable performance of Ravel's Piano Concerto, BUT this is a revelation! You witness his inner response to (and knowledge of)every aspect and concept, and musical intent, of a monumental variety of Mahler's NINE Symphonies. I not only knew this was the truest vision of Bernstein's genius in definitive example, but besides feeling blessed to have had this singular example, began to purchase more copies of this revelation to enrich the lives of dear friends.

Format: DVD
SAY - nobody seems to have noticed that, in the Wiener Philharmoniker performance of the Sixth, Lenny restored the third hammer blow that Mahler withdrew out of fear of bad luck. Has anybody else done this? I'd rather have a boom than a thud and the sound is too brief in my view, but at least he was bold enough to do it. All the performances are great. We don't seem able to get the rehearsals disc? Let's face it and take joy in it - there will never be definitive performances of any Mahler symphony. They're just too complex, inexhaustible, universal. No one will ever explore them fully. But the Bernstein performances here are essential for their comprehensive and emotional approach. The video direction by Humphrey Burton (The Golden Ring) helps us understand their glorious and revolutionary orchestration. By all means get the Bernstein set and plan to live with it for the rest of your life!

One movement out of each symphony? Are you sick in your mind? This is Mahler, conducted by one of his first rate conductor, not a pop song contest to play along. Shame on DGG! What next? Mozart one of each or Beethoven? TititiTa!
