I don't consider Mahler to be anything beyond post-romantic, stylistically speaking. While he anticipates atonality in his later works, all of his music invariably has a tonal center.

I don't have much practical experience with true expressionism. But when l was still playing the oboe in orchestras, Debussey and Ravel were familiar and welcome, and still my preference.

Thanks! I had heard about Comenius and his pioneering work in education but never about this work of his. Very interesting, now I understand why you mentioned it --- looks like it might have taken some inspiration from Dante. I'll take a look at the translation these days.

While missing tidal effects would undoubtedly be disruptive for some species and possibly disastrous for others ( there are reasons for the term, " Lunar cycle " after all ), it all comes down to the fact that the major food chains start with plants, virtually all of which depend on photosynthesis. Remove the Sun, and food chains collapse... along with everything else. And what doesn't starve, freezes.

I'd bet on the Tardigrades surviving all others, for a while, but it wouldn't be much of a life, even by their standards.

Imo marches are marches, be they left-wing or right-wing. If they'd give you the impulse to join in the stomping, they did their job just fine.  :D

My five right-wing favorites, in no particular order

Oriamendi
Cara al sol
Horst-Wessel Lied
Giovinezza
Sfântă tinerețe legionară


All of them are on YT. Pay no attention to the lyrics (although neither of them, while bellicose, are particularly offensive, which is paradoxical given their context), just let the music carry you away.

For balance, here are my five favorite left-wing marches, in no particular order:

Die Arbeiter von Wien
Himno de Riego


* which uncannily resembles Bellini's "Ah no giunge uman pensiero" from La sonnambula.

Петрушка may be spelled in more ways. The spelling I used is the official English way. Btw I didn't know that the name means parsley according to Google translate.

I wasn't trying to 'correct' you, just using the spelling that was to my liking (and also quite widespread).

Yes, it would be. l think they both had specific strengths which make for interesting contrasts.

Du Pre was capable of emotional intensity which I've never heard from any other instrumentalist. She sang through her cello, gave it a human line and tonal shading which was just astounding in certain passages of her performances.

Rostropovich, on the other hand, had unrivaled command of dramatic structure. I don't think he was looking for special moments as Du Pre was; Sasha had his eye on the culminations within a work, his incomparable technical address giving him multiple options when the big moments came at last.

Ok, back OT...

I got the idea because I actually saw two hares in the week after Easter ;) (in German it's Easter hare (Osterhase) not bunny) Supposedly they have become less rare but I don't recall when I saw one before that occasion. They are huge compared to rabbits. The wind was against me and apparenly they didn't hear me for quite a while, as soon as I spotted them I moved very carefully. Still didn't get that close although I think something else startled them and when they bounced aways there was also a deer jumping up from the fields. But deer (Capreolus capreolus, roebuck) are rather common here (middle of Germany) and I see them frequently when jogging or taking walks. (So are wild boar, one can get the meat at our butcher who also hunts but I never saw any of them.

Sounds good. I probably never had good ones but as someone who generally likes (and occasionally bakes) cake, pastry and sweets (in moderation, most of this is unfortunately about the most unhealthy stuff you can eat, unless one does hard physical work) I rather dislike donuts. They seem to smell/have an aftertaste of cheap oil and if glazed are always too sweet.

If you never had a Cafe Du Monde beignet from New Orleans, then you haven't had a good donut before. No glaze required. Only powered sugar --- a small hill of powered sugar to be exact. :)

That's not a donut in my book. A donut is toroid shaped and sold by chains ;). I don't deny that there might be very tasty things somewhat similar to donuts although unfortunately nowadays my stomach doesn't really agree with fried pastries and I rarely eat them at all.

Living fairly close to San Francisco, I've attended SFSO concerts led by Seiji Ozawa, Edo De Waart, Herbert Bloemstedt, MTT and  ( most recently ) Manfred Honeck.

I've never attended an LA Phil concert, but I'll give them the nod here just to be ornery.  >:D

She's a fine violinist but I like Benedetti's work much better. For example, her performance of the Korngold VC (one of my favorite VCs of all-time) is played with such tenderness and emotion that I felt a genuine connection not only to the music itself but the performer of the music. Also she has such an incredible tone, which always draws me in. Of course, Julia Fischer also has a gorgeous tone.

She's also pretty easy on the eyes:

Piano sonatas, but, honestly, this match-up doesn't really make much sense since violin sonatas are generally thought of as violin and piano. So it's not really a fair match-up, but I guess that's the fun of it. ;)

That is a view informed heavily by the aesthetic of, well, German Romanticism. Less "Germanized" people might find the Parisian artistic world of 1830s and 1840s much more interesting and effervescent. Rossini, Liszt, Chopin, Meyerbeer, Bellini, Delacroix, Ingres, Daumier, Hugo, Balzac, Sand, Sue, Lamartine, Nerval, Musset, Gautier, Vigny, Heine  --- there's no similar array of musical, painting and literary luminaries that Vienna or Berlin could boast during that time. Only Leipzig with Schumann, Mendelssohn and their circle is of equal footing but only musically, literary speaking it was a non-entity.

AFAIK the Cologne radio recording was only published decades later and is not nearly as well distributed and well known as Carlos'.
Carlos was apparently feeling that he could never really reach his father. He often used the annotated scores from Erich and it seems that even some slighty odd preferences (e.g. Mozart's 33rd and 36th symphonies) were "inherited".

One of the most haunting and mesmerizing movements in all of music for me is the third movement (Farben). It essentially is a cloud-like, floating haze of sound where there seems to be one chord sustained throughout the movement and it's passed through all of the sections of the orchestra. But it's the way this chord is treated to all of these varying timbres that I find truly impressive. I do love Berg's Three Pieces for Orchestra, too. It wasn't an easy choice given how much I love and admire both composers.
