- "One of the greatest evenings ever heard in the Mann Auditorium"
Bernstein traveled the world as a conductor. Immediately after World War II, in 1947 he conducted in Tel Aviv, beginning a relationship with Israel that lasted until his death.
While Bernstein's conducting repertoire encompassed the standard literature, he may be best remembered for his performances and recordings of Haydn, Beethoven, Brahms, Schumann, Sibelius and Mahler. Particularly notable were his performances of the Mahler symphonies with the New York Philharmonic in the 1960s, sparking a renewed interest in the works of Mahler.
A live recording from the Mann Auditorium, 25/8/1985
"Bernstein, one of the great Mahler conductors, presents the 9th Symphony with penetrating insight into its musical and emotional depth... the audience responded with an outburst of ovations which lasted for some 20 minutes, calling Bernstein back on the stage time and again." Israel Evening News
