    Gustav Mahler: Symphony No.10 in F-sharp major. Simon Rattle, Berlin Philharmonic

    It was in October of last year that I first heard Mahler's 10th in full. I've listened to it a handful of times since, but never have I enjoyed it more than just now. What a symphony! The finale is almost as powerful as that of the 9th, I think. I do want to explore other recordings. Rattle of course is a great champion of this work, but I'm sure that as with any Mahler symphony, there is more than one way to play it.

    Well, I'm still in a bit of a Mahler mood...



    Gustav Mahler: Kindertotenlieder. Janet Baker, Leonard Bernstein, Israel Philharmonic

    I think this is the best recording of the cycle in my library.

    Well,let's start that it's not a "masterpiece" some composers are really boring but I do remember that when it came out it was a kind of hype, it's not coming that often from the shelf's that said, the "new" Riccardo Chailly on Decca would be my first choice.

    Bach, Cantata No. 78, Trauerode

    These is a beautiful recording, with all rough edges smoothed over. Herreweghe takes the title "Plus Belle" seriously.
