Mahler’s Third Symphony
With the appearance of the long playing record in the late 1940s, the recording of the long symphonies of Gustav Mahler and Anton Bruckner became possible. By 1950, not all the symphonies of Mahler had appeared on records. But in Vienna in 1952, the conductor F. Charles Adler, who, in his youth, had worked with Mahler, recorded Mahler's Third Symphony for the first time.
On this week’s Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM 90.9, we will play excerpts of this historic recording.
