Mahler & Bernstein

 “The symphony must be like the world. It must contain everything,” said Gustav Mahler.  And in his heartfelt Symphony No. 4, he reveals his world through the innocence of a child.  Michael Tilson Thomas conducts Mahler’s heart-rending Fourth Symphony. Jean-Yves Thibaudet returns for Leonard Bernstein’s Second Symphony, capturing the anxiety of its time in music that veers between symphony and concerto.
