For the first time on DVD here are Leonard Berstein's critically acclaimed mid-1980s live performances with the Vienna Philharmonic - also featuring his spoken introductions to the two symphonies.
"Bernstein manages to shape and shade the composer's long-breathed melodic lines with consummate authority... Emotion pours out of almost every note... deeply moving." (Gramophone on Symphony no. 6)
"Bernstein captures magnificently the sense of growing disquiet... this new version packs a powerful punch... the gradual transition from innocent humour to barbed irony is unusually convincing." (Gramophone on Symphony no. 9)
