Steinberg was a frequent performer of Mahler’s works in the US though he only recorded the composer’s Symphony No.1 with Pittsburg in 1952 for Capitol Records. This blazing account from 1965 of Mahler’s titanic ‘Resurrection’ Symphony in brilliant stereo sound confirms his authority as a great Mahlerian.  Dutch contralto Annie Delorie (1925-2009) gives a stunning rendition of the ‘Urlicht’ and is joined in the final movement by the radiant Polish soprano Stefania Woytowicz (1922-2005). This live studio recording is a rarity, having never been issued before.
