Mahler: Symphony No. 5 Product Information
Mahler: Symphony No. 5 by Bernstein / Mahler / New York Philharmonic was released Oct 11, 2010 on the Sony Classical label. The New York Philharmonic Orchestra has a particularly great Mahler tradition that dates back to the composer leading the orchestra in 1909. Mahler: Symphony No. 5 On this recording, Leonard Bernstein directs the orchestra in the Symphony No.5, a performance that is part of the Bernstein Century series on Sony. A great proponent of Mahler's music, Bernstein was one of the first conductors to record all of the composer's symphonies. Mahler: Symphony No. 5 The Fifth Symphony is the last work Mahler wrote before a world of grief fell upon him and his family. Mahler: Symphony No. 5 Mahler said "a symphony is like the world: it must embrace everything," and this is true of the Fifth Symphony. Mahler: Symphony No. 5 The work opens with a funeral march and concludes in triumph; all of life's travails and joys are present. Mahler: Symphony No. 5 Bernstein grasped the duality of the work, balancing ferocity and tenderness. Mahler: Symphony No. 5 The opening "Trauermarsch" is dramatic, and the Scherzo almost demonic. In the famous Adagio, the New York Philharmonic strings sing with an elegant, noble tone. The finale is treated like a boisterous romp and provides a wonderfully energetic conclusion to a thrilling performance.
