I second that! Kubeliks Mahler 1 ist just outstanding! Perfect! But
Bersteins 1st movement of this symphony is something very special. Ein
wahrhaftig leidenschaftliches Genuss, sozusagen!

I also think so. Kubelik had a certain understanding for Mahler. I
concluded my recent review with saying that in Kubeliks Mahler I hear
Mahler and I took Bernsteins Mahler I hear Bernstein. A little exaggerated
perhaps, but still truth in it.
