Since Mahler himself never conducted the Ninth Symphony and Das Lied von der Erde, Walter's performances cannot be taken as documentations of Mahler's interpretations. However, in the light of Walter's personal connection with the composer and his having given the original performances, they have another kind of primary authenticity. 1952: Gustav Mahler, Das Lied von der Erde, with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, feat. soloists Kathleen Ferrier and Julius Patzak.

While this recording of Mahler's wonderful "Das Lied von der Erde" is certainly acceptable, well-played and precise; the orchestra seems to lack some compassion compared to Bernstein's recording that was made with the Israel Philharmonic featuring the same soloists (Rene Kollo and Christa Ludwig). Along this line, while Karajan's Berlin Philharmonic seems to try hard to impress, Bernstein's Israelis create a crisper, edgier and more sincere sound. The only other performance I've heard that acknowledges this (but less pronounced) is that of Julius Patzak performing with Bruno Walter in 1952. At the very least, find these performances on YouTube, listen to this note and you'll see what I mean.
