Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Conductor Leonard Bernstein leads The London Symphony Orchestra and the Wiener Philharmoniker in performing three of Gustav Mahler's most celebrated symphonies in this historic 1973 performance captured live at the magnificent Ely Cathedral. From the modernist strains of "Symphony No. 1" to the uplifting refrains of "Symphony No. 2" and the spiritual sounds of "Symphony No. 3" this career-defining performance showcases one of the classical genre's most talented figures performing in his natural environment.
