Quote from: aukhawk on July 11, 2020, 05:02:54 AMThey're all good recordings. There's only one of the 12 that I would describe as less than 'very good'.Thanks Cato - that was quick! Let me know if you want me to send you another group in the same way.Yes, those basses are important aren't they? I never really realised how much until listening closely to several of these samples.I'm off now to watch/listen to bits of this, that Mahlerian mentioned in the WAYL2N thread. I love watching Boulez conduct!
Quote from: Cato on July 11, 2020, 10:23:21 AMAround 2010, maybe early 2011, I happened to catch part of a broadcast concert from the Chicago Symphony with Pierre Boulez conducting Mahler's Symphony #7. It was just as good as the DGG performance with him and the Cleveland Orchestra.

Quote from: Sergeant Rock on July 11, 2020, 01:33:41 PM( C2 ) I should recuse myself...it's a long time favorite. Not sure I can be objective Sarge
Quote from: mc ukrneal on July 11, 2020, 05:34:56 PMOverall? That's a tough one as it's a pretty strong group of performances overall. A2, C1 and C3 would be the choices with A2 likely being tops. Still, I think C2 needs to be heard at least once.
Quote from: aukhawk on July 12, 2020, 07:04:36 AMOn that basis, I'll award A2 a bonus point.If anyone else who has listened to all three groups wants to nominate a 'best of all 3 groups' I'll do the same - 2 bonus points for a strong nomination and 1 point for a more tentative choice (like above).

Quote from: aukhawk on July 12, 2020, 07:46:49 AMC2 - why not, gives him a lift, but never going to be enough
Quote from: aukhawk on July 12, 2020, 07:46:49 AMWould we be interested in a 2nd/final round of 3 or 4, based on the Scherzo ? Or shall we just leave it here, wait for a few more listeners, then reveal?
Quote from: Sergeant Rock on July 12, 2020, 08:01:25 AMI knew I was throwing my vote away but I could not do otherwise. By the way, B4 is my runner-up, so Mahlerian and I finally agree about something
Quote from: Cato on July 12, 2020, 08:55:04 AMAnd what is that clicking on p. 152 of the score, right before the climax at the end of Cue 91? ... And this time the "clicking" on p. 152 of the score, right before the climax at the end of Cue 91, seems to be a tambourine! Is there a another version with a tambourine at that part?
Quote from: aukhawk on July 12, 2020, 10:00:47 AMThanks Cato !(Note to self, must get hold of a score ... ) isn't that a percussion effect that is drowned out in many recordings? I've seen on videos a perussionist hitting the casing of a drum with what looks like an oversized egg-whisk - is it that bit?
Quote from: Mahlerian on July 12, 2020, 10:03:52 AMMy Eulenberg score (edited by Redlich) doesn't have any percussion marked at that crescendo, but I know that Mahler frequently made small changes to orchestration in rehearsals that some editions will incorporate and others won't. Performances these days will probably use the more recent critical edition score. Most recordings I've heard have a Rute, which is what you're describing.
