Many thanks to the two of you for adopting the thread. I feared it would remain unloved!
My musical tastes centre on the romantic: Mahler (above all), Richard Strauss, Puccini, Verdi, Berlioz, etc. but happily extend from Mozart through Beethoven to Nielsen, Prokofiev, Stravinsky and Britten. The one era I’ve never been able to get into (and I duck now, for fear of missiles!) is the Baroque.
I’m sitting listening to last movement of Mahler’s 9th (one of my all time favourite symphonies) in the Fischer/Budapest Festival Orchestra version from Channel Classics: glorious music.
On that note, is anyone else going to the Barbican (London) on 20th February for the Vienna Philharmonic conducted by Adam Fischer performing Mahler’s 9th?
