MAHLER Symphonie No. 5 Abbado 4377892
Listening to the recording . . . I felt aware of a powerfully unifying, interpretive force that was pushing and pulling the music in the most subtle, natural way. Realizing that this must be the 'silent' personality of the conductor, I immediately cemented my reactions to the name 'Claudio Abbado'. The link had been made and I was a fan from that day on, without really knowing it.
