A unique archival discovery of Mahler Symphony No. 2, a live performance in Sydney, Australia, from September 1950. First time on CD. Following this legendary performance, The Sydney Morning Herald reported: “Klemperer received probably the most excited and most grateful ovation ever accorded a musician in Sydney. Long after the house lights were switched off, the audience was still on its feet applauding thunderously”

Live performance, September 1950
