Kondrashin was born in Moscow on March 6 1914. His mother was a violinist and his father a viola player. Although he started learning the piano at the age of six, music didn’t interest him a lot at first. At the age of fourteen, however, everything changed: he developed a deep interest in the orchestra and started taking private lessons with Nieolai Ziliaiev. In 1931, he joined the Moscow Academy of Music and began working with the great pedagogue Boris Khaikin. Between 1936 and 1943, he was director of the Maly theatre in Leningrad where he conducted a great number of operas. As a result, he received many invitations to guest-conduct, especially orchestras in Leningrad and Moscow.

I'm a bit taken aback that Haenssler should label excellent stereo from 1981 as a historical recording. Kondrashin died that year at the age of 67 - the day after his birthday, as it happens. His Mahler recordings took place with his own Moscow Phil., but the present orchestra of Southwest Radio in Baden-Baden and Freiburg was under Michael Gielen, an experienced and exciting Mahler conductor in his own right, so the chemistry must have been good - better, I suspect, than with any Soviet orchestra at the time. Mahler wasn't a regular part of the orchestral tradition there.

The composer who dared such open rivalry with God himself was also a brilliant conductor. “Architecture is music in space, as it were a frozen music”, Schelling once wrote, and Mahler applied this in his conducting style: music is architecture transposed into the dimension of time – moving, flowing architecture. Instead of merely tracing the outlines of fellow-artists’ musical blueprints with a schoolboyish hand, Mahler built forms based on the drawings of great musical architects. To Mahler, the actual process of constructing a musical form – its deployment along the axis of time – was infinitely more important than the ultimate goal, a perfectly formed crystal.
