Yes, they are/were both composer and conductor. But given that, what makes one different from the rest?

No GMG member has a recording of Mahler conducting.

Even the worst CDCDCD sufferer can't claim to have one! Ugh!

Now, think not of how we think of them. Think of how each think of themselves... (hint hint)

I noticed after I posted, my iPhone had autofill with "ass" instead of "ess", I guess I had donkeys on my mind.

Furtwangler, Salonen, Mahler, Boulez, Walter

Though all are famous conductors, the first four considers themselves to be a composer first and foremost, and a conductor on the side. Walter, however, considered himself a conductor first and foremost and a composer on the side.
