Summary
"Leonard Bernstein, whose perfomances of the Seventh were instrumental in pushing the work towards mainstream status, conducts it here with white-hot communicative power. When he prepared the huge "Symphony of a Thousand" with the Vienna Philharmonic for the 1975 Salzburg Festival there had been only one previous Austrian performance. This DVD encompasses the exultancy of the opening movement, while in the second movement, Mahler's setting of the final scene from Goethe's Faust, Bernstein drives the music to the final redemptive blaze of glory."--Container
