GUSTAV MAHLER: SYMPHONY NO. 3: Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra (1973)
FRANZ LISZT: A FAUST SYMPHONY: Boston Symphony Orchestra (1976)
Two films of legendary performances of Bernstein as conductor: his recording of Franz Liszt’s A Faust Symphony with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and his recording of Gustav Mahler’s Symphony no. 3 with the Vienna Philharmonic. Bernstein’s advocacy of this music was significant to the reception of both composers in the 20th century.
