"... quite an emotional experience ..."
- The Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music

"... an extraordinary night ... a collector's item."
- Gramophone

"One of the most highly-charged of Bernstein’s Mahler performances ... the electricity of the encounter thrills and disturbs through every note."
- The Guardian

"Bernstein conducts a superb fourth movement. A red hot, searing delivery of this wonderful music ... the Berliners play with mind-numbing power, strings especially encouraged to greater and greater levels of emotion by Bernstein ... a testament to the man's genius."
- MusicWeb International

Recorded in West Berlin in October 1979, this live album stands as a document of the only time Leonard Bernstein ever conducted the Berliner Philharmoniker. Described by Gramophone as "an extraordinary night," the performance brings together a world class orchestra, a legendary conductor and one of Mahler's greatest symphonies.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
