Gergiev's Mahler

...continually gets bad reviews. But I hear things like the stupendous video below and I wonder how that can possibly be. So many artists fail because they risk too little, Gergiev fails because he bets the house on every throw. Gergiev may be erratic, but he's also the most larger-than-life conductor of our time. When he's good, nobody in the world is better.
