Someone shoot me....

Sep-10-06  szunzein: pas des rewsky
Sep-24-06  fgh: Answering the previous question, here is another Mahlerian!
Sep-24-06  szunzein: welcome!!
Sep-24-06  fgh: Coming to Mahler, what are your favorite works by him (if any)? Mine is the 9th Symphony...
Sep-25-06  Uzi: Near verbatim quote by Harold Steptoe: 'Oh, Mahler, compared to you, Picasso is a load of old crap.'
Oct-25-06  szunzein: Hello,

<fgh> I don't have any Mahler's special work that I could definitelly place above the others. But, your last msg makes me feel like listening to the 9th symphony more attentively now. Thank you. (That's one of the nice things about sharing your tastes. Someone can tell you that Mahler is "crap", but then, somebody else can give you a good idea: to listen to something almost as if it was the first time)


God bless

Oct-25-06  Chopin: <MAHLER LAST SYMPHONY>

Nov-02-06  fgh: Thanks <Chopin>, that sounds like a great performance, I will look for it. It's been actually a long time since I have heard Mahler's 9th Symphony complete, but those few minutes actually reminded me why I always regarded this work as the greatest single achievement any human being has ever done...
Dec-01-06  Chopin: <Yo-Yo Ma, Elgar Cello Concerto, 3rd. mvmt> This is a beautiful piece!

Dec-22-06  szunzein: Chopin buddy.
Merry christmas to you!!

God bless

Apr-19-07  810609: Today I got Herbert von Karajan´s recording of "The Schöpfung" by Joseph Haydn with Gundula Janowitz, Christa Ludwig, Fritz Wunderlich, Walter Berry and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau (the best ensamble I can think of availaible in the time of recording, even Werner Krenn who finished tenor rezitatives after Wunderlich´s death is stunning).

I think I found ultimate beauty in music. Fritz Wunderlich singing "Mit Würd´ und Hoheit angetan" or Gundula Janowitz singing "Nun beut die Fluhr das frische Grün" make my heart sing too. Even Karajan managed to make this recording youthful, full of energy and passion and avoided his usual pompous style, which was his typical problem in religious music.

Haydn himself once said that thinking of the Creator always made him irresistibly cheerful. Well, this music is really work of happy man.

Oct-03-08  amadeus: Pure classic:

Not bad either:

Aug-07-09  Knight13: Polonaise Heroique by Chopin is an amazing piece.

Same goes to Scherzo No. 2.

Close, it's 'compared with you':

If there any Mahler aficionados out there, let me know if that is Mahler, and if so which symphony. Cheers!
