On the eve of his centenary in 2018, Sony Classical releases the most important collection, Leonard Bernstein’s classic American Columbia recordings, remastered from their original 2- and multi-track analogue tapes. This has allowed for the creation of a natural balance (for example, between the orchestra and solo instruments) that brings the quality of these half-century-old recordings, excellent for their time, up to the standards of today’s audiophiles. In addition, there has been a meticulous restoration of some earlier masterings in which LP surface noise was too rigorously eliminated at the expense of the original brilliance.

When Leonard Bernstein died in 1990 at the age of 72, music lovers the world over mourned the loss of one of the 20th century's artistic giants. In addition to his role as conductor, composer, educator and performing artist, Bernstein was one of the early pioneers in bringing the arts to television. As such, he became one of the most internationally recognized musical personalities in the world. He was a man who not only needed music in order to live, but who saw in artistic communication the means to touch the mind, the heart and the spirit all at once. His need to generate this communication dictated his life from the day he discovered music to the day he died. Recorded in March 1990, this performance is Leonard Bernstein's last concert with the Vienna Philharmonic, an orchestra he deeply loved.

The projected complete cycle of Vaughan Williams’s symphonies started by the late Richard Hickox has left a precious heritage in the discography of the composer. Conducting the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, Sir Andrew Davis takes on the challenge of completing the series with idiomatic interpretations of two masterpieces: the final Symphony No. 9 and the ballet Job. Sir Davis's subtle direction combined with the pure sound quality of the recording does full justice to Hickox’s great enterprise and delivers a powerful conclusion to this already acclaimed series.

As the last completed symphony that Mahler wrote, the Ninth has often been heard by audiences as the composer’s swan song: a nostalgic, moving farewell from a composer conscious of his own mortality. This interpretation is of course easily justifiable, as etched into the musical fabric of the symphony are references to the tragedies that befell the composer in the years before his death. Furthermore, it is wholly plausible that for a man as melodramatic as Mahler, the idea of a symphony that centres around themes of loss and finality would surely have been an appealing prospect.

Gustav Mahler's Ninth Symphony is primarily regarded as the composer’s reaction in the summer of 1908 to the diagnosis of a heart ailment, which he received just before writing the first sketches for the work. Mahler was deeply distraught and cannot have known how few years he still had left to live. His processing and exploration of his life experiences, and of valedictions, the meaning of life, death, salvation, life after death and love, always took place in and through his music.

Unfinished works by great masters possess an appeal that is hard to put into words. It can reach almost mystical dimensions if the creator died before finishing it. Just think of Mozart’s Requiem and Schubert’s «Unfinished Symphony». The same is true for Anton Bruckner’s ninth symphony. He was able to complete three movements. But on 11 October 1896, after working on the Finale in his flat at Belvedere palace in the morning, the 71-year-old composer succumbed to his serious illness. Bruckner reportedly planned to dedicate the symphony to «the Dear Lord», which indicates that he intended his «Ninth» as a farewell piece.
