Jean Sibelius: Symphony No. 1 in E minor, Op. 39
Berliner Philharmoniker, Herbert von Karajan

Among the most propulsive, dynamic Sibelius recordings of the First I've heard, and a favorite of mine!

The sound quality of that recording leaves much to be desired, unless those Warner incarnations have improved that point. As to the performance itself is cogent indeed.

Elgar and Dvorak from Jacqueline du Pré. Du Pré's Elgar produces such feelings of nostalgia in me.This recording was used as the theme tune for the superb TV adaptation of John Mortimer's Paradise Postponed, which was set in the 1960s, with the original LP cover (the one coupled to Janet Baker's recording of Sea Pictures) even making an appearance in the show. That record has never been out of the catalogue and I remember we had it on permanent order with EMI when I worked at a classical record shop in central London back in the 1980s.

As I already had Baker's Sea Pictures when I came to buy the Elgar on CD, I went for this coupling of the Dvorak, a live performance from 1970 with her husband Daniel Barenboim conducting.

Mahler: Das Lied von der Erde (February 27, 1970)
Waldemar Kmentt, Janet Baker, Rafael Kubelik, Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra

My favourite recording of a favourite Mahler work. The first time I ever heard the work was at a concert with Dame Janet as soloist. Rudolf Kempe was the conductor on that occasion and the work had a profound effect on me. That recording was made available on disc once, and there was at one time a further live Baker performance available under Leppard (along with the studio Haitink) but this Kubelik one outdoes them all.
