I can just picture speeding down the mountain side as the sounds of "Veni, Creator Spritus" cascade around me. Wouldn't that be cool....
I have a physical disabiity, so maybe not!
Has anyone heard Kubelik's complete DG set? His DG Mahler First and live efforts on Audite are very good, but has anyone invested in his full cycle? And any imput on Barbaroli as a Mahlerian?
Barbirolli was a great Mahlerian. My first Mahler concert was conducted by Barbirolli (in Boston with the BSO). I believe it was the 5th (I was very young and that's a long time ago). As I recall, he seemed almost asleep on the podium but then a little past the middle of the first movement in the most amazing fashion, he revived and everything just bloomed.
