    First time ever listening to this work:

    I'm realizing that my answer to the "favorite recording" question is usually Bruno Walter.

    On with Mahler I stay. Time for Mahler no.3. Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic playing live.

    What a towering performance of this demanding work! I must admit that sometimes I do lost the plot with Mahler's no.3, but this particular rendition just does the trick for me. I'm not an unconditional Bernstein fan. I find some of his other performances of Mahler's symphonies filled with mannerisms that simply bore me to death.

    The new BBC MM cover disc this month features among others a conductor who has gained a higher profile of late - François-Xavier Roth.

    Rachmaninov, The Bells - Natalya Romaniw (soprano), Oleg Dolgov (tenor), Iurii Samoilov (baritone), BBC National Orchestra & Chorus of Wales, Philharmonia Chorus, Tadaaki Otaka. recorded live at the BBC Proms 8th August 2019.

    Mussorgsky / Woods, Pictures at an Exhibition - BBC National Orchestra of Wales, François-Xavier Roth. recorded live at the BBC Proms 2nd September 2010

    Henry Wood's orchestration of Pictures is the main interest for me on the disc. Woods, the founder of the annual Promenade Concert series, produced his orchestration before Ravel's more well known version. His attempt is perhaps leaner, less colourful sounding than Ravel's but well worth hearing.

    All in all a nice disc.
