Above: Enjoy this highly emotional trailer for the new movie “Maestro.” The music is the fourth “Adagietto” movement from Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 5
In a post we published on this blog a few days ago, we suggested you listen to a complete recording of West Side Story that is available on Classical Archives.
Why? Because on November 22nd “Maestro,” Bradley Cooper’s new film biography of Leonard Bernstein will be released in theaters. We think it could be one of the most important movies ever made about classical music. We also think the film could attract a new, younger audience to classical music in general. We are excited.
Although we cannot see the movie until it is released on November 22, we can start listening to the music that will be used in the soundtrack. Fortunately, a lot of the music that will be used in the film is available to you right now on Classical Archives.
Today, we would like to offer you a chance to listen to a recording of Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 5. It features the famous “Adagietto” movement that figures prominently in “Maestro.” Our performance is conducted by Leonard Bernstein, leading the New York Philharmonic. (To listen, you must be a member of Classical Archives. Membership, which costs only $7.99/month, affords you unlimited listening to tens of thousands of classical tracks. And you can start a free 14-day trial membership if that works best for you.)
Be sure to check back here often, because until “Maestro” is released, we will be offering you a steady stream of recordings of music by Leonard Bernstein, conducted by Leonard Bernstein.

We hope you will make Classical Archives your home for enhancing your enjoyment of “Maestro.”
