Quote from: brewski on May 26, 2023, 04:43:31 AMUPDATE: tomorrow night's conductor is now James Conlon. Interestingly, I heard him 20 years ago in the same piece, when he made his debut with the Minnesota Orchestra. (Rhetorical query: who makes his initial appearance with the Mahler 8? )
Quote from: Brian on May 26, 2023, 07:33:30 AMWell, I can think of at least one conductor whose first major conducting appearance was Mahler 3, which they'd never studied through before...and that worked out fine!
Quote from: LKB on May 26, 2023, 06:40:02 AMRhetorically speaking, it's probably either his first program with the orchestra, or his first time conducting M8. If it were his debut, that would be quite a feat...

Quote from: ultralinear on June 17, 2023, 11:42:59 AMNot so long ago I became quite fixated on the 9th - and Bruno Walter's 1938 Vienna recording in particular - after attending an excellent concert performance. It is often the way. Something switches in the brain, and for a while that's all you want to hear.
Quote from: vers la flamme on July 07, 2023, 01:13:09 PMHappy 163rd to a great composer! I have not been all the way tuned in to Mahler like I can sometimes get, where his music is the only thing I want to hear for weeks on end. What I've been listening to a good bit of lately is the 9th and, especially, the 6th. Today I'm listening to the 4th, in this very good recording: I almost wrote very good recent recording before checking the date; 1999. Still, much of the Mahler in my collection is a lot older than that. I would love to catch up on some great performances from the past 10 years or so. Any recommendations? (I have way more Mahler than I need as it is, so any recommendations must be absolutely earth-shattering and unmissable ...)
Quote from: aukhawk on July 08, 2023, 12:47:28 AMVanska / Minnesota Orch is a recent cycle (still ongoing, awaiting 3 and 8, I think) which is full of good things IMHO.
Quote from: Wanderer on July 08, 2023, 05:18:03 AMI've been holding on from buying, waiting for the eventual boxset. Same with the Iván and Ádám Fischer cycles, which I also consider very worthwhile. Streaming is ideal for situations such as these.
