Info

Bertini always performed Mahler with tremendous enthusiasm. If we listen to this Fifth Symphony, we are made to notice that he intends not only to control the orchestra precisely, but also to realize more vivid expression of the ups and downs of the music. Perhaps for that reason unexpectedly open atmosphere drifts in the whole. Tempo is very flexible. Each instrument demonstrates soloistic power of expression. When some instruments play an active part, he makes other instruments very modest as if he urges the former to try. As a result, the Fifth Symphony takes on the aspect of an exhibition of orchestral instruments.
