Claudio Abbado, Berliner Philharmoniker Gustav Mahler: Symphonie No. 5

Product Type: 2 Vinyl
Sold out!

Claudio Abbado’s critically acclaimed recording of ‘Mahler 5’ with the Berliner Philharmoniker sees its first release on vinyl! Recently featured in the movie TÁR, the remarkable background to this vinyl release is indeed associated with the movie itself as Abbado’s iconic ‘Mahler 5’ recording serves as a source of inspiration and a personal favourite of Todd Field, Director of TÁR. The vinyl is now available on 2-LP Gatefold Vinyl Set (180gm vinyl pressed at Optimal). 

“Conductor and orchestra are “right inside the spirit and sound of this score ... Only a select few get through to the subtext. Abbado is one.” (Gramophone)
