A Bit of Mahler

Would like to share with my friends the finale of Mahler 9 ... not because it's the most technically polished performance of all time ... but because an incredible passion and spirituality was generated that evening.    I hope you enjoy this.  I used a baton last used by Leonard Bernstein in 1989 to conduct this same symphony, which was presented to me by Stan Gayuski of the New York Chapter of the International Mahler Society.  It was wonderful to feel so connected to the person whose interpretation of this symphony was so important to me in my youth.
