Bernstein Mahler 4
The real Mahler 4 concert at night. We enter a time-vortex through the magic of YouTube and see two videos from this same concert—36 years ago. Yes, I was there.

Roland Berger 1st horn VPO
Today, we get to see Bernstein conduct Mahler 5 for the televised version of the concerts. I get to see Bernstein from the organ balcony and fifth row orchestra. I also meet Roland Berger, 1st horn of the Vienna Philharmonic.

A great day.
