    Mahler: Symphony No. 8 "Symphony of a Thousand"
    Georg Solti / Chicago Symphony Orchestra

    Such an amazing symphony! The influence of Wagner on Mahler's symphonies has never struck me so clearly as in the 8th.

    Prompted by some conversations here about Beethoven's symphonies on piano arranged by Liszt, I'm listening to this set as played by Katsaris:



    Today's been 1 to 3. This is a rewarding and refreshing experience. I love how these works sound on piano, they work quite well on these arrangements. The Eroica, as expected, sounds pretty thunderous on the loud passages. Impressive and exciting to say the least. Katsaris plays with ardour and conveys the meaning of the works very appropriately.

    The sound quality is poor in this early-1960s USSR mono recording. But THIS performance of Rach 2 by Richter is probably my fave Richer rendition ...



    Sergei Rachmaninoff (1873-1943):
    Piano Concerto No.1 in F sharp minor, op.1 *
    Piano Concerto No.2 in C minor, op.18 +

    Sviatoslav Richter - piano

    Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra +
    Kurt Sanderling - conductor
