    Telemann Wind Concertos disc 23 of



    Intelligent and elegant - very civilised music.
    Music begins where words leave off. Music expresses the inexpressible.

    Mahler
    Symphony No.6 in A minor
    Cond. Simon Rattle, CBSO, WC (1990)


    Mahler
    Symphony No.7 in E minor (Live recording)
    Cond. Simon Rattle, CBSO, WC (1992)


    More fine wine Rattle recordings with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra for Gustav Mahler. I am noticing that he remains safe in his style and his orchestra, something that probably does not work for No.6 but does wonders with No.7. I still do not find justified that this first-class, consistently good recording is better than Klemperer's massive recording to feature on the Warner compilation. Another issue and a reason is that, while Simon Rattle plays the symphony in 77:12 minutes, Klemperer's studio lasts for 100:38, meaning another CD. Anyways, Rattle's No.2 and Klemperer's No.7 are extraordinary Mahler recordings that stay out of that precious box because of time issues.

    I am liking Rattle's set just a bit less than Pierre Boulez, but both are really good and regular!
