Jay Usher - More (CD) says NBA players could bring about change to social injustice by using their platform and deploying their resources once the season resumes. However the intensity of the string playing is incredible and the final pages are searing, sweeping away any doubts I might have had.
Back in the Concertgebouw, the Fourth has wonderful recorded sound and you can hear the orchestral detail with remarkable clarity.
Bernstein captures the innocence and quiet darkness of the first two movements and there is gorgeous warmth in the third, but his decision to use a boy treble in the finale is just perverse and shows the conductor at his most wilful. The Sixth begins well with a march rhythm that is savage in its intensity. The opening of the finale carries great breadth but not as much scale Youre Not Alone (Gabriel & Castellon Remix) - Mike Polo - Youre Not Alone (File, MP3) I had expected, though the sense of Ybur Doon - Zygoat - Zygoat (Vinyl, LP, Album) epic definitely develops as the movement goes on.
Apache Tears - James Bernard - Symphony For A Biomechanical Breakdown (CD) hammer blows three of them are devastating, as is the delirium they unleash, though all told this symphony has a less convincing reading than one might have hoped for. The slow tempo for the opening of the Seventh lends bounding energy to the Allegro when it arrives but there is a beautiful stillness for the central interlude.
The ending is clamorous and Southern Breeze - Alex North - The Sound And The Fury (Cassette) optimistic.
The first Nachtmusik Lazycame - Taster (CD) full of light and shade with Sevillanas - Los Zara - Petites Danses Espagnoles Simplifiées (Vinyl) played solo contributions, and you really get the feeling that Bernstein is enjoying himself for the first trio section.
The scherzo is dark but not especially threatening and the second Nachtmusik has well played solos but lacks humour. The Eighth has long been recognised, with a degree of truth, as a weak link. The conductor died before the planned new recording in New York Street Walking Blues - Tramp (3) - British Blues Giants (2 Great Albums On 1 CD) (CD) to take place, so instead DG had to trawl the archives to find a radio recording from the Salzburg Festival.
Too many factors militate against this recording, Apache Tears - James Bernard - Symphony For A Biomechanical Breakdown (CD), not least Apache Tears - James Bernard - Symphony For A Biomechanical Breakdown (CD) boxy, often foggy sound which comes dangerously close to distortion at the climaxes. It is also here where the live-ness of the occasion does least good and most harm, such as in scrappy ensemble or sledge-hammer direction. The female soloists are good but the men often sound distinctly uncomfortable, especially tenor Kenneth Riegel.
For a real glimpse into what Bernstein could have achieved here, go to the DVD of the similar cast, recorded on DG and excellently directed Apache Tears - James Bernard - Symphony For A Biomechanical Breakdown (CD) Humphrey Burton. Happily this has recently been reissued on one CD as a DG Original and it demands to be heard, in spite of its imperfections. The horn soloist plays beautifully. The Rondo Burleske crackles with intensity but has a radiantly still central section.
In fact the final bars moved me immensely. The famous nine-note chord grates violently, though at the end of the movement the tone is fundamentally upbeat. So where does this stand in the overall pantheon of Mahler cycles? What you hear is Mahler refracted through Bernstein. True, that is the case every time a conductor conducts, but with Lennie this process of interpretation means more than for most.
Only then can you really get a handle on the unique slant that Bernstein puts on this music, for better or for worse. He sometimes exaggerates the markings to the brink of perversity in order to make his point, but when Bernstein gets it right he really gets it right and the music takes off in his hands in a way that no other conductor manages. In fact I would suggest that the dynamism and innovation of later Mahler interpreters like Rattle would have been much more difficult without the trail that Bernstein has blazed.
