T/M,

Did you perform just the partial 10th that Mahler wrote, or the complete symphony, as finished by Cooke?

I voted for # 1 as my favorite odd numbered Mahler. However TM, I believe the Adagietto of the # 5 symphony is the greatest and most beautiful slow movement in all of Symphony Land! IMO

TM, it's actually a work I've never heard before, but am curious and very interested in hearing.

I requested Cesar Franck's Violin Sonata.

It was a pretty good violin sonata.

After reading Phil Goulding's book of "Top 50 Composers", there are a number of composers and compositions that have peaked my interest, for which I know very little about.

In particular, Franck, Hindemith, Bartok, RV Williams, just to name some.

Hindemith has peaked interest for me, because it seems like he has composed works for almost every single instrument!

I didn't get to hear the entire piece, since work kept interfering. I didn't recognize the piece, so I looked it up on the 'now playing' screen, which is why I recognized the title.

It was enjoyable, what I heard of it.

Looks like this match, too, has come to an end. With the 'Titan' taking the prize.

Hmmm, Symphonies 1 & 2 took the top prizes in their categories. Does this mean Mahler's skill peaked early in his career?
