Finale of Mahler 8, conducted by Bernstein

I used to own a set of DVD's of Lenny conducting all of Mahler's symphonies plus Das Lied von der Erde, and Kindertotenlieder.

Considering I was like 19 when I got them, I was even more prone to romantic ecstatics, I watched the finale of Mahler 8 many times conducting along with Bernstein.

Really, the clip below is worth it just to see Bernstein conduct if nothing else...if anyone was ever born to conduct in the great Germanic Romantic tradition, it was Bernstein.





Actually, I thought of a text that could go with this music, a text which also comes from Northwest Europe:

......And it came to pass that Iluvatar called together all the Ainur and declared to them a mighty theme, unfolding to them things greater than he had yet revealed; and the glory of its beginning and the splendor of its end amazed the Ainur, so that they bowed before Iluvatar and were silent!
