Did I need another cd of this work? Yes, when it is this one. It is controversial. it is so very different. Does the infamy heaped on Bernstein's spaciously conceived final movement bring the work crashing around his and our ears? I have several sets of the symphonies in my collection and this is a recording I could not be without. It holds together. Ok so it is the longest final movement in recordings of this work but it is mesmeric and overwhelmingly intense. Not every conductor and orchestra could hold this together over such a span. where some hear Lenny the showman, I hear Tchaikovsky ...almost in a revealing way as if I had never heard the piece before... Genius is a much paraded term but I find that this is a genius conducting allowing me to hear something fresh in an established classical work that I thought I knew so well. This is the reason I buy different recordings of the same piece and go to concerts in the hope of connecting with something new. This is a highly desirable disc if you are prepared to be challenged.

Late Bernstein, as conducter, is unique. By adopting very slow tempi in pieces of the late Romantic period, he squeezes out every possible expressive potential inherent in the music, and no doubt adds further interpretative nuances of his own.
The DG cover shows a snow covered landscape, lit by a pale winter sun, extending to infinity. Visual association or no, the bassoon entry at the beginning of the work seems to come from an infinite distance. The acoustic space seems endless, the recording is beautifully spacious and seductively lit. This recording was made in Avery Fisher Hall, not a recording venue known for its distinguished acoustics, so it must have been Bernstein's sense of instrumental balance that produced such luminous sound.
The performance is slow, which enhances the feeling of infinite space (Celibidache is even slower than Bernstein in the first movement development, but Celibidache wasn't concerned with sonic magic). By using very slow tempi, especially in the coda to the finale, the finale has been utterly transformed into something extraordinary moving.

The main observation to be made about Bernstein's 1986 recording with his New York Philharmonic is the time taken. It comes in at around fifty-nine minutes in length, the slow pace being concentrated mostly in the outer movements; the first movement is about five minutes longer than standard, the last movement seven minutes longer.

It's thus a slow but never languorous interpretation, made when Bernstein was sixty-eight years old. Perforce it loses some of its potency and grace by its slower pace, but it does in fact lend a greater majesty to aspects of the finale.

The sound quality is very good, but somehow I wished that of the orchestration was clearer.
