Edward Seckerson discusses the greatest performers and recordings of the composer's works

This week's Gramophone Podcast is a special longer edition focusing on the music of Mahler. It coincides with the publication of the latest in our series of our souvenir publications drawing together our century-long coverage of major composers, 'Gramophone Presents Mahler'.

For this podcast, Editor Martin Cullingford was delighted to be joined by one of today's leading writers on Mahler and his music, Edward Seckerson. Conversation - and musical excerpts - span the extraordinary history of Mahler recordings, taking in interpreters including Otto Klemperer, Leonard Bernstein, Dame Janet Baker, Kirill Petrenko and François-Xavier Roth.
