HASH(0x9cb0bac8) out of 5 stars Conducting with Joy Jan. 21 2010
By Robin Howard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This set of four videos present a wonderful insight into the spirit of one of the greatest conductors of all time. He has lived up to his goal, stated early in his career, of discovering a way to conduct an orchestra "without all that bullying." With the greatest of respect for musicians (especially young ones) Abbado leads elegant performances with monumental knowledge, vision and love.

Abbado directs each measure of a composition with a clear understanding of where the music has been and where it is going. Long term crescendos unfold in perfect proportion with an impeccable sense of timing and his face reflects joy along every step of the journey. His performance of Mahler's Resurrection Symphony in this set is my personal favorite recording of any kind.
