Perhaps I am spoiled by having listened to superb performances of Mahler's Fifth too many times (Gatti with the Royal Philharmonic is my go-to CD), but the VPO's handling of the second and third movement under Bernstein's baton sink this recording for me. Performing those sections well requires more than simply playing the right notes at the right time; there is so much that goes on, particularly in the second movement, that a conductor must have a good rapport with the orchestra to hold it all together. The players in the orchestra must feel their parts internally rather than just playing what is on the score, while at the same time play with a sense of being part of a larger endeavor. Here, while the second and third movements are played passionately enough, the tightness required for the music to make sense is lost. One hears not the genius of the overarching whole in those sections, but instead hears separate creative ideas executed concurrently. While Bernstein and the Vienna Philharmonic do an outstanding job with the other three movements, it is not enough to rescue the recording. Newcomers to the symphony might not be won over, and those already familiar with the fifth might find the sloppy moments in the second and third too annoying to warrant a second listen.I realize some others disagree with me on this; a survey of internet reviews of this recording show it to be somewhat popular for some reason. However, Bernstein's earlier recording of the Fifth (with the NY Philharmonic) appears to be more highly regarded, as are those by Gatti, Rattle, Tennstedt (particularly the live recording) and Barbirolli. Readers are encouraged to seek out one of those recordings instead. Mahler's Fifth is a terrible thing to waste.
