Leonard Bernstein’s first complete cycle of the Mahler symphonies, in the Japanese stereo/multichannel releases of what were originally 3-channel recordings.
Mahler’s 8th Symphony, the “Symphony of a Thousand” as it is sometimes called, requires the largest forces of any work in the common repertoire, as the name suggests (although it can be done with a mere 465 people). The chorus is active for the entire work, which is divided into two parts – the first part in the hymn “Veni Creator Spiritus,” and the second part in the final scene of Goethe’s Faust.
This piece is sort of an anomaly in Mahler’s oeuvre, and seems to be dropping in popularity lately, with both Ivan Fischer and Claudio Abbado declining to record it. It is however a fascinating work, and required listening of you enjoy Mahler’s other work.
For those who want to keep their Mahler Symphonies straight, a helpful guide.
If you want Bernstein on Mahler, there’s no better place than his televised “Young People’s Concert” on Mahler.
Musicweb has a comprehensive review of the entire cycle in the DSD remastering (but on RBCD)
