I like this short clip of a rehearsal sequence where Ludwig disagrees with Bernstein over his choice of tempo in DLVDE.
I know that a recording was made, but who got the last word ?

She was one of the great voices of our age and she was, of course, a very strong interpreter of Mahler.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and leave no doubt.
