    Today marks my first encounter with the Mahler of Glorious John, via the Fifth.
    If someone would care to point me in a direction where I may learn the recording location, I'd be forever obliged.
    Wattford Town Hall, London, from 16-18th July 1969. Enjoy it. It is perfect (though not as emotional than Tennstedt studio).

    This is very old mp3 from my early days of digital purchasing. It smacks of one of those cheesy "900 Most Relaxing Classical Masterpieces For Impressing Your Dinner Guests!" compilations, full of pretty melodies. This piece is still nice regardless. I included it because for me it's late 18th century orchestral. I'm not sure how they got the idea to call it "baroque."



    Saint-Saens: Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor, Op. 22
    Neeme Jarvi / Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra / ?



    That first movement sounds like Beethoven's giant shadow still cast across the musical landscape even this many years after his death. The remaining movements of course sound more like Saint-Saens.

    Somehow I had thought the pleasant little song from the movie "Babe" was derived from this concerto, but maybe that's another Saint-Saens piece. Or it's so subtle I missed it.



    Hanson: Symphony No. 1 in E minor, op. 21, "Nordic"
    Kenneth Schermerhorn / Nashville Symphony Orchestra



    This is overall a little bland for Hanson. I don't know if it's Hanson or Schermerhorn that leaves me tepid. Or a bit of both. Usually Hanson is frighteningly awesome. Still, this symphony has it's moments. The final movement is pretty impressive -- more like what I was expecting.
    Bella Davidovich is the soloist in the Concerto - too me years to figure that one out as well, and I own the same album.

    Default Mahler Challenge Barbirolli vs Boulez vs Kubelik vs Tennstedt E8 - I

    Mahler
    Symphony No.8 (Live recording)
    Sol. Martina Arroyo, Erna Spoorenberg, Edith Mathis, Julia Hamari, Norma Procter, Donald Grobe, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Franz Crass
    Chor des BR, Chor des NDR und WDR, Regensburger Domspatzen, Frauenchor des Münchner Motettenchores
    Cond. Rafael Kubelík, SOdBR, Audite-BR (1970-2005 Remastered Edition)

    --
    Mahler
    Symphony No.8
    Sol. Andrea Rost, Cheryl Studer, Sylvia McNair, Anne Sofie Von Otter, Rosemarie Lang, Bryn Terfel, Jan-Hendrik Rootering, Peter Seiffert,
    Rundfunkchor Berlin, Praguer Philharmonischer Chor, Tölzer Knabenchor
    Cond. Claudio Abbado, BPO, DG (1995)


    Introduction 1: (Three recordings that are out of the semi-final, played before the contenders). These two recordings have some differences. From the start I liked best the Kubelík pace and style, and the sound quality, remastered, makes it worth the listen. The quality of the soloists and the chorus outnumbers the sound of the BR orchestra. Abbado's account is up to your taste, it opens (too) slow (for me) but the rest does not dissapoint me. The key points here were not enough to raise my attention, but it is more than good. Kubelík signs a Mahler No.8 that I wish his studio DG version was able to beat.
