The Definitive Resurrection

On 29 August 1999, Zubin Mehta conducted Mahler Symphony No. 2 (Resurrection)at the neighbourhood of Buchenwald concentration camp in the German city of Weimar with the Bavarian State Orchestra and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra playing together as an ensemble. Another amazing result was achieved by Mehta at the Mount Masada recording of the Resurrection. The Masada Mount live recording (open-air concert)is much better soundwise.The Mezzo sung by Quivar is relaxed and smooth. As can be expected from the locale settings, this concert is loaded with emotion with Zubin Mehta in full control. This performance is one to cherish and the one to have.
