Mahler, Symphony No. 4 in G major

Leonard Bernstein was the first conductor ever to record all of Mahler's symphonies
not only on disk, but also on video. The Mahler cycle was the first project in the more
than 20-year-long association between Leonard Bernstein and Unitel. The leading Mahler
interpreter of our time, Bernstein recorded all of Mahler's symphonies between 1971 and
1985, chiefly with the Vienna Philharmonic, producing a unique musical document and
triggering a major reappreciation of Mahler's works.
"All Mahler symphonies, all Mahler works for that matter, deal in extremes, extremes of
dynamic, of tempo, of emotional meaning. When it is bare, it's extremely bare, when it is
thick and rich, it's thicker and richer than anything in 'Götterdämmerung', and when it is
suffering it suffers to a point that no music has ever suffered before." (Leonard Bernstein)
