||GUSTAV MAHLER - SYMPHONY NO. 5 - LEONARD BERNSTEIN (Conductor) - VIENNA PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA -
Deutsche Grammophon 4236082|
The best version of the Mahler 5th. Period. This pivotal symphonic work, where Mahler became a master of his craft, is one of the
most potent musical statements of the 20th century. The first movement is a vision or premonition of the horrors mankind will inflict on
itself through discrimination and war during the 20th century, and the last movement shows the complete opposite, in that all that misery
can be avoided if mankind were to work together in love and collaboration and achieve true happiness.
