    Default The Mahler, Sibelius poll

    The idea came spontaneously to me the other day. I might admit that some of the associations hold little water.

    I voted on the basis of what I would choose to hear in a live performance -- a difficult choice. But on that basis I chose Mahler's 3rd (as I have not heard a live performance of this) along with the Sibelius 5 which I love.

    Mahler 6 / Sibelius 4, just ahead of Mahler 10 / Tapiola.

    I chose Mahler's 3rd because it's my favorite of the Mahler symphonies, and I have no problem with Sibelius' 5th as the pairing, because I like all of Sibelius' symphonies.

    Several of these pairings are appealing to me (Mahler 2/Sibelius 2 and Mahler 3/Sibelius 5 in particular), but the most intriguing to me is Mahler 6/Sibelius 4. That would be a very dark program, so maybe not for everyone.

    Only 2 pairings appealed to me; M6 & S4 and M10 & Tapiola. I chose the former, just.
    My new year's resolution is to buy less new music and listen more to the absolutely STUPID amount of music I already have.

    I voted Mahler 6-Sibelius 4 ... but with the M 2 / S 2 a close second... I think the former would be quite an experience

    Sibelius Symphony No. 2, Violin Concerto and Symphony No. 5, and skip Mahler completely.
