Quote from: M forever on December 17, 2007, 03:38:19 AMThe Barenboim recording simply astonished me.
Quote from: Anacho on December 17, 2007, 05:02:28 AMThank you for all your insights - gatefully received as Mahler is new territory so I didn't want to be deterred from Marhler by a bad interpretation. I must have heard chunks glancingly but not made a deliberate attempt to sit through a symphony. The DVD looks a good bet. I've been happy with what I've heard of Abbado and Bernstein so I'll choose between them. The Chicago recording is still around but it's a bit of a hope to get it by Christmas. Cheers.

Quote from: MISHUGINA on December 19, 2007, 06:57:22 PMHey guys I'm listening to Bernard Haitink conducting Royal Concertgebouw from the RCO anthology set and it's pretty good compared with his another anemic recording with Berliner Philharmoniker.
Quote from: PerfectWagnerite on December 19, 2007, 06:48:05 PMI don't get it, the finale doesn't remind me the least bit like anything from Die Meistersinger. Where do you hear a Meistersinger reference
Quote from: Que on December 19, 2007, 09:47:00 PMI have no comparisons, but I've been happy with that RCO/Haitink for many years.One of the best (together with 2 & 3) from the cycle IMO.Q
Quote from: Jezetha on December 19, 2007, 11:22:38 PMThe main theme is very similar to the Meistersinger motive (which has been noticed by many others, btw). Just listen to the Meistersinger prelude, and then compare it to the theme of Mahler's Finale. The rhythm, the rise in the melody, they are quite similar. So that's why I had to laugh at Alkan's characterization.
Quote from: MISHUGINA on December 20, 2007, 06:58:21 AMAre you talking about the Philips one? The one I heard is a live concert from this box set:
Quote from: Que on December 20, 2007, 02:13:52 PMYes I was, thanks for clearing that up. From which year is that live recording?Q
Quote from: bhodges on December 20, 2007, 02:34:58 PMPardon me for barging in (but I love this set). The Mahler 7 is from Nov. 10, 1969. Here is a complete track listing on MDT.--Bruce

Quote from: Wanderer on December 24, 2007, 08:48:07 AMThat's a very worthwhile set, worth every penny of its rather steep price.
Quote from: Anacho on December 24, 2007, 03:46:28 AM I know it's nicknamed "The Mad" and I wondered?
