Symphony No. 1,
As a protégée of Leonard Bernstein, Maestra Alsop is keenly aware of her mentor's important role in popularizing the music of Mahler. Here the Maestra leads the first symphonies of both of these great composer/conductors, offering a thought-provoking look at how Bernstein was influenced by his Austrian predecessor.
