Editorial Reviews

Bernstein conducts Mahler's Symphonies Nos. 5-7; Ruckert Lieder, and Kindertotenlieder with the New York Philharmonic and the Wiener Philharmoniker. Nobody interprets Mahler like the brilliant Bernstein!

Format: Audio CD
DG has made a sensible division of Mahler's symphonic career into thirds. This is the post-Wunderhorn phase, so called because with the Fifth Sym. Mahler stopped implanting the folk-flavored material he gathered from his Knaben Wunderhorn song cycle. Innocence was left behind, and in its place Mahler composed three symphonies, #5-7, that baffled and alienated his audience. Today, the Fifth is heard far more frequently than the other two, thanks to the famous Adagietto, and its ability to fit on one CD has insured many bargain reissues.

The Gramophone reviewer stated as fact that the first version of the Fifth that Bernstein did in NY was a weak link in his ealier cycle, while this Vienna Phil. remake is one of the pinnacles of the second cycle. For me, the first version was almost a mess, but I didn't find a huge improvement in the Vienna remake, despite the fact that it's much better played and recorded. To my ears, Bernstein didn't "get" the Fifth, which is strange, since so many other conductors (Walter, Barbirolli, Abbado, Karajan) did.

But in the Sixth Sym. Bernstein turned in a signature performance that awed nearly everyone. His conception of the first movement is fast and relentless, but that's the only possible caveat. The range of emotion and the virtuosic playing of the Vienna Phil. are astounding. This is a work that Bernstein rehabilitated when he first recorded it in the Sixties, and that recording, which single-handedly convinced the musical world that the Sixth wasn't a bad piece of music, stands up very well even now.

The same rehabilitation and the same magnificence belong to Bernstein's recording of Sym. #7. In terms of sheer excitement and bravado, his NY Phil. recording is unique.

This is a great set for these three symphonies. There are many great versions of each. Yet, if you want to get a set of these, this would be a great place to start.

The fifth by Bernstein is quite different. the initial movement is slower than I would expect. yet, it delivers on the goods.

The adagietto is not too slow and the finale is triumphant. Quite an experience. The sixth is now my favorite again. Each movement is rightly timed. The finale is awesome.

As to the seventh, it is not a favorite at all. But, this version is exciting and it drives a lot.

In the end, for the middle symphonies, this is a no brainer. There are individual versions that may be better. but, there is only one Bernsein!!!

Format: Audio CD
personally, i have reservations about 5 and 6 - i like the slower first movement here with vienna than with the ny phil. recording - really slow and funeral - but i prefer the 2nd movement with ny - more exciting, especially at the final fortissimo climax - i loved the tempo of the scherzo of the 5th on bernstein's earlier recording with the phil. - here it's a little faster - but the trio sections come off better with vienna (better paced) - the famous adagietto is definitely slower in the earlier recording, and i prefer it - but lenny probably wanted this movement more integrated with the finale, so he chose a slightly faster tempo with vienna - all in all, the ny phil. plays rougher, and there are some occasional ensemble problems, but there's an excitement that's palpable which i don't get with vienna -

the old bernstein 6th with the ny phil.
