the wood’s in trouble

enough of Berlioz, for a time. this is what i’m listening to right now.

first, two of my great loves, Ralph Vaughan Williams and Ian Bostridge. here is Bostridge singing selections from “On Wenlock Edge”, part of the RVW symphonies box set (which if you do not have you should HAVE)

continuing with Haitink recordings, here is Haitink conducting Concertgebouw performing the second movement of Mahler’s Symphony no. 4.

and i mean, really, what else do you need besides RVW and Mahler?

    Great find on the Haitink. I love his use of the “O-K” signal for entrances! It nice to hear Mahler as played by a woodwind-friendly orchestra.
