Bernard Haitink (conductor)

Haitink's Mahler interpretations offer a combination of objectivity and distance, emotional reflection and release, continuity and tradition. Under Haitink, the Concertgebouw secured its reputation as one of the world's great Mahler orchestras and their cycle of the composer's symphonies and orchestral songs stands as witness to the orchestra's feeling for its deep history and to the enduring artistry of its conductor.

This set will be available - like the Bruckner symphonies - as 24/96 download.

The Blu-ray (and the corresponding download) also includes a second recording of the 1st Symphony.

But the later 7 is not included.

Does anyone know what the date of this second recording of the 1st Symphony is? The digital booklet (I purchased the digital download) does not say!

EDIT: I did my own research and the second recording, uncredited in the booklet, is from 1972.

Also, as far as the other recording of the 7th Symphony, that was recorded in 1983, wasn't? So it was probably a digital recording 16/44?
