Gustav Mahler: Symphony No. 5 - IV. Adagietto Leonard Bernstein, conductor New York Philharmonic Recorded live at the Mass on the day of burial for Robert Francis Kennedy, St. Patrick's Cathedral, New York City, on 8 June 1968.

Senator Robert F. Kennedy died early the morning of June 6, 1968, a day after he was shot. At the funeral two days later, Leonard Bernstein led the New York Philharmonic in Gustav Mahler’s heartrending “Adagietto” from Symphony No. 5. Listen to an excerpt of the “Adagietto,” recorded live at the funeral in St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City,on 8 June,1968. Afterwards, Jacqueline Kennedy wrote to Bernstein — a letter Alex Ross dubbed the “thank-you note of the century” — describing the ceremony for her late husband’s brother, and thanking him for his contribution to it:

When your Mahler started to fill (but that is the wrong word — because it was more this sensitive trembling) the Cathedral today — I thought it the most beautiful music I had ever heard. I am so glad I didn’t know it — it was this strange music of all the gods who were crying. And then — if only you could have seen it — it was the time when Ethel had thought of the most touching thing — having the littlest nephews and nieces, small children, before that terrifying array of Cardinals and gold and Gothic vaults, carry all the little vessels for Communion up to the high altar, so that they could have some part in the farewell to the uncle they all loved so much. They were so vulnerable — and your music was everything in my heart, of peace and pain and such drowning beauty. You could just close your eyes and be lost in it forever….
