Jascha Horenstein (Russian: Яша Горенштейн; 6 May 1898 – 2 April 1973) was an American conductor. Horenstein was born in Kiev, Russian Empire (now Ukraine), into a well-to-do Jewish family; his mother (Marie Ettinger) came from an Austrian rabbinical family and his father (Abraham Horenstein) was Russian.

The Art of Jascha Horenstein. Read full description. See details and exclusions. Horenstein's Mahler 3 is legendary, and is my current desert island pick. The other works are also top notch, and I'm glad I bought this set rather than the single Mahler 3 CD. Full details of the recordings are given, and the CD covers are superb reproductions of the original LP covers. One slight criticism is that there are no translations for the choral parts of 3, and no background descriptions of the works themselves. So I'd recommend getting a book on Mahler, that includes translations, such as "Gustav Mahler: An Introduction to his Music" by Deryck Cooke
Hence Horenstein completists are a little bit crazy, sortof the classical music equivalents of Grateful Dead Deadheads. Certainly, the cover art on this Scribendum set seems to mirror this deadhead image: the box front features what may be the most demonic, in-action photo of Maestro Horenstein, superimposed on a background of garish, psychedelic colors (looks like a Grateful Dead teeshirt). The chosen recordings amply show Horenstein’s ability to render effective a holistic view of each piece; they also showcase (some of) his breadth in repertoire, although I wish there was more breadth represented (but this is a quibble).
