About

It was only fitting that the great Claudio Abbado would begin his storied tenure with the Berliner Philharmoniker by conducting Mahler’s First Symphony in December 1989. For one thing, Abbado was already considered one of the great Mahlerians of his day; for another, the symphony—by a young Mahler, not yet 30—seems infused with a sense of new beginnings. Even today, we can feel the unique magic of this momentous concert, thankfully captured on film.
