Quote from: O Mensch on April 06, 2007, 12:06:15 PMKeep an eye out for a new live Mahler 3rd with Haitink/CSO that will come out next month on the CSO's own new label. I attended the live performance which will be on this recording and it was spellbinding.

Quote from: Heather Harrison on April 06, 2007, 12:26:34 PMI will start on the Third Symphony without getting into the programmatic aspects (I will bring that in later).Like many of Mahler's symphonies, the structure is at least somewhat symmetric. This one (in its final form) is in six movements, and the first and sixth are the longest and most expansive. The second and fifth are shorter and lighter in style, and the third and fourth provide a central core.One central idea that I take out of the entire symphony, and which pervades most of its movements, is a musical idea of conflict between darker and lighter forces.

Quote from: Drasko on April 06, 2007, 01:26:43 PMIf you like that one then do try to get Walter's live 1953 NYPO with Irmgard Seefried on Tahra. Seefried is much better suited to the part and sound quality is exceptional.
