Description

Two late-romantic giants, Richard Strauss and Gustav Mahler, are showcased in this valuable 5-DVD box set of live recordings. Erich Leinsdorf offers a deeply personal account of Mahler’s First Symphony, while Kurt Sanderling’s interpretation of Das Lied von der Erde is inherently musical. Michael Tilson Thomas leads exciting performances of Strauss’s Till Eulenspiegel and Ein Heldenleben, and Hartmut Haenchen gives an outstanding reading of Mahler’s Sixth Symphony from his cycle with the La Monnaie Symphony Orchestra.
