I would definately second the Bertini Mahler set, wonderful strings.

And Gielen is one of my favourite cycles.  Now this one I did buy in the box set, but lost out on all the excellent fillers which came with the Gielen individual cd issues.  When I say fillers, I mean excellent accompanying works to fill the discs, not the run of the mill stuff.

There simply is too much Mahler out there.  ;D

Couldn't resist this one Harry.  Will let you know the verdict after it arrives and has been digested.

I'll get back to Nielsen later today (I've been in a Danish mood lately  8) ) but first John Williams Suite to Born on the Fourth of July (very beautiful main theme).

I never saw that one.

Cruise's greatest performance, and one of Oliver Stone's best films even though I don't wholly agree with his anti-war sentiments (my Vietnam experiences were very different from Stone's). An effective and, as I said, beautiful score by Williams.

Much as yourself, Sarge: if I had only one cycle, and that cycle the one of which I think the least, I should completely love the entire Nielsen symphony cycle, all the same.

What do you think of Born to Kill, Sarge? I think it's a movie very well done, but apparently not coincident with the personal experiences of many people (particularly the first half, regarding the training period).

I love Trio Wanderer. Especially their "Saint-Saëns: Trios avec piano No. 1 & 2" album was amazing.

English isn't my first language. Sorry if i have mistakes :)
