In episode #68 of the "DCD Classical 'Cast" we feature an extensive selection from an unusual recording. Rudolph Barashai performed the Mahler Fifth Symphony with Die Junge Deutsche Philharmonie. The resulting concert was electrifying, and fortunately it was recorded. Perhaps the most remarkable part of the story is that the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie is made up of talented high school students from around Germany.
