That made me laugh, thank you!
There comes a point in your life when you realize: Who matters, Who never did, Who won't anymore, And who always will. So, don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

Mahler

I know that as far as Mahler is concerned, Haitink liked the songs of "Des Knaben Wunderhorn" the most. Fortunately, we have a nice recording here that shows the orchestra and the acoustics of the hall in all their glory.
It seems appropriate, therefore, to listen to these songs that I also love very much.

Very nice piano, totally clear in all registers and a strong bass, this man can play counterpoint, he can arrange the voices in an interesting way. The longest 960/i I can remember hearing, I don’t know if he talks about the choice in the booklet.

Staying with this - it stands to the Schubert warhorse sonatas as something like Harnoncourt’s Four Seasons stands to warhorse Vivaldi. It really is radically rethought through.

*Hildegard von Blingin' is very talented--lovely voice!  I ran across this song which was written for Game of Thrones:  Jenny of Oldstones..gorgeous and haunting me thinks.  :)

*I did also appreciate her Medieval adaptation of Dolly's original version (lyrics too).

Most of this Sibelius album.



The final piano quartet (for 2 violins, cello and piano) is particularly interesting as it originally had an opus number, written the year before Kullervo and the original version of En saga. Definitely has the flavour of other works from the early maturity - I found myself weirdly thinking of the Lemminkainen Suite.
I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

Really sorry to hear of Haitink's passing, whose humility and music-making I've appreciated for over forty years since I bought my first Mahler Symphony LP's on Philips with him.

That's interesting to hear, will try and join you in that recording later. RIP Maestro Haitink

It is awful to hear that Haitink has died.  After I finish this, I'll play his Strauss Alpine Symphony.  Really sad.  What a fine legacy he has left.
Meanwhile, I just read here that he had passed over, and I was listening to this:



Lyra Angelica amazing on this recording.
Haitink next...

Shostakovich

Symphony No.2 "oktober"
Chor und Sympphonieorchester des Bayerichen Rundfunks

Symphony No.12 "The Year 1917"
Sympphonieorchester des Bayerichen Rundfunks

Yesterday I really enjoyed the first CD from this set, especially Symphony No.15 with its references to Wagner was very special. I had also listened to the adagio in the performance with Ashkenazy but there the references to Wagner were less noticeable.
So a very good start for this set.

That's one of the great Alwyn discs!

Certainly, Jeffrey. Both recordings are splendid.
I think that I have you (and Kyle) to thank for alerting me to the quality of the PQ Cesar.  :)

Yes, Arnold had a distorted sense of reality and mental problems that stamped on many of his works. The Symphony No. 7 is especially disturbing, but quite witty and without losing his "sense of humor". One of my favorite English composers, in a top 25.

I'll have to listen to his Seventh again - it's been a while. I was reading up on Arnold's personal life, and it really says something that his music is as witty and humorous as it is, even if the tragedy and bleakness show through from time to time.
