Leonard Bernstein is still Gustav Mahler’s most famous and, controversially, most significant interpreter. It was he who really popularised the composer’s music in the USA and he invented a whole new performing tradition for Mahler. The vast Andante comodo feels expansive and well paced, and Bernstein manages the transitions through consolation and tragedy very effectively... The finale is controversial but I still found it utterly involving and never did I find it indulgent or wilful. In fact the final bars moved me immensely. The key to his interpretation was his stated view that the Adagio finale takes the form of a prayer, Mahler’s last chorale,his closing hymn so to speak, and it prays for the restoration of life, of tonality, of faith. - Music Web International
