Sony should issue this recording at birth to everyone! It’s simply amazing! I originally heard Bernstein do this performance live and have lived with it ever since it was issued, first as LP then as CD. However, with this Japanese SACD issue, it’s like I’m really there. It comes to life like never before!
Mahler’s 7th Symphony, the “Song of the Night” as it is sometimes called, is perhaps Mahler’s most ambitious symphonic work, in five movements with two “nachtmusik” movements as the second and fourth movements, and a brilliant rondo as the last movement where the light finally breaks through. This recording is among the most acclaimed of the all the Mahler 7 recordings, superbly played and recorded with life-like brilliance.
My only complaint about the SACD issue that Sony makes us pay a usurious price. Do they think that only the Japanese enjoy SACD quality, and make the rest of us pay through the nose for it?
