Thank you for that post Aiantas! I have saved it and will definitely use it for reference.

Philidor, haven't seen Death In Venice. It "sounds" nice though.

(I did just watch the Barber of Seville).

It's pretty disturbing but it is an extremely good film.

Thumbs up 3rd.

Here's a bit of Mahler that'll please everyone! This is Flo's favorite Gustavo Dudamel conducting the recapitulation from the 1st mvt. of the 3rd. symphony. Haydnguy, you'll hear all that stuff I mentioned in the long post about the 3rd. Unison horns, the trombone solo the quirky woodwind tunes and orchestral climaxes by the truckload!

You're a darling. It's not just the Dude, though. They are a brilliant orchestra and they seem to swap around so everyone gets a bit of the limelight.

Thanks for that great clip. I'll be returning to this thread from time to time to let you know how I like certain things and maybe a question or two. BTW, as a curiosity I checked Fanfare and they have the CD below in their "Hall of Fame" for #3. I realize these are subjective things....

Oh, that reminds me - I want to try to get tickets for the SBYO performance of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring at the South Bank next April. It's that or Bartok

Actually, if you're going to subject yourself to Bartok, the SBYO are probably the best way to do it.

Yay! I've done it. Two tickets for the Rite of Spring. I was only just in time.

I don't understand why nobody appears to have mentioned the First -it was my first love and i still find it very attractive and accessible.
