MTT conducts Mahler and Bernstein

“The symphony must be like the world. It must contain everything,” said Mahler. In his heartfelt Symphony No. 4 he reveals his world through the innocence of a child. Internationally renowned Mahler interpreter MTT conducts the heart-rending Fourth Symphony.  “One of the best pianists in the world” (New York Sun), Jean-Yves Thibaudet is featured in Bernstein’s Second Symphony.
