I'm shocked that you haven't at least given Mahler a try. Particularly so since so much praise has been heaped upon him here on the board (and not just by me!).
Since Hal has made the deal with you, I'll not Symphony Number 2 make any suggestions Symphony Number 2 as to which Symphony Number 2 you should try, but Symphony Number 2 you really out to check it out. Symphony Number 2
Ah.. Symphony #2... my favourite! Couldn't agree with you more Shap. I have tickets to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra with the Mendelssohn Choir for the 5th of April to hear it.
Wow... Thalberg sent a list.
