Well, the first thing that would come to mind is Berlin Phil- Mahler 9. So predictable.
So... let me think of something different.
Hmm... maybe:

New York Phil/Greg Cook
Schoenberg- 5 Pieces for Orchestra
Webern- Symphony
Schnittke- Concerto Grosso 1

---------Intermission--------------

Prokofiev- Chout

If the thread was "If you could be conductor for one season, what would your season program be?", I'd include a fair amount of Canadian content.  :D

I'd have an all Eckhardt-Gramatte evening, that is for sure.

Me, with the LSO.


Vaughan Williams: Wasps overture

Hindemith: Symphonic Dances

~ Intermission ~

Vaughan Williams: Symphony No. 8

Encore: Walton: Partita for Orchestra, III. Giga Burlesca


I wanted to begin with another piece that would use the extra percussion employed in RVW's 8th, but couldn't think of anything.
My next thought was to begin with Schnittke's Passacaglia, but I thought that might make the first half a little long!

It would be pretty conventional for me:


London Symphony Orchestra (I would also consider the Berlin Philharmonic, VPO or closer to home the Boston Symphony Orchestra):

Jennifer Higdon Loco (my one concession to contemporary music)
Sibelius Violin concerto (Znaider or Mutter or Gringolts as soloist)

Intermission

Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6 "Pathetique"


I know, boring, and quite similar to the programs being played by the Boston Symphony right now in Tanglewood, but it is what I enjoy.

Thanks.

Sincerely,

Hany.

Because I consider it absolutely most dramatic of all Beethoven symphonies and would try to show it.

I have my own name for it  per analogiam to eroica and pastorale - Sinfonia dialettica.
