Fortunately, something always remains to be harvested. So let us not be idle.

i’ve said it all before so i’ll just say this: happy birthday Mahler. alles Gute zum Geburtstag. (and yes, i know i’m a day late. i spent all day listening.)


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?
