Silvestre Revueltas (1899-1940): Ocho por radio, conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen. For clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, percussion, 2 violins, cello, and contrabass (I think). Incredible music...combines various types of Mexican popular music with modernism. Revueltas was a really fabulous composer, and yet we don't have any of his music on IMSLP.... (of course, it would all be blocked from access anyway)

Mahler: Das Lie von der Erde. Otto Klemperer conducting, and the wonderful Fritz Wunderlich as soloist for "Das Trinklied von Jammer der Erde". The best recording of the work, with Christa Ludwig pulling off an epic "Der Abschied".

For the record, I was actually listening to this because Wunderlich is my favorite tenor, not because it was Mahler.

Oh, but right now I'm listening to the finale of Shostakovich's Seventh Symphony, one of the greatest finales in all of music. :D

And now I'm listening to the fantastic final movement of Korngold's Violin Concerto. Anne Sophie Mutter on violin.

Dvorak- String Quartet No. 1 in A major, Op. 2: I. Andante - Allegro
Prague String Quartet

It is amazing how massively long Dvorak's early string quartets are, yet they maintain such a light and cheerful attitude.

The slow movement of Bruckner's 6th symphony. Lovely!

The Finale of Korngold's brilliant "Die Tote Stadt" with the incomparable James King as Paul. He ranks up there along with Wunderlich as my favorite tenor.

Ligeti: Le Grand Macabre, conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen. Fantastic work. My favorite contemporary opera (along with Glass's Akhnaten and Carter's What Next?; I despise Adams). I really love his music but the text is also great. Anyone able to see the NY Philharmonic's performance 2 weeks ago?

No, but I wish! The car horns at the beginning are great.
Of course, I also love Berio's un re in ascolto, but he's not really contemporary anymore...but Birtwistle is! Gawain, anyone?

Would've loved to see that, too. Read it was pretty impressive. My favorite is when the metronome starts ticking away as the comet nears, but the car horns and doorbells are great too. Pretty neat stuff!

I'll have to check out Gawain, since I've liked what I've heard of Birtwistle. If only Takemitsu had started writing his opera!

I found this clip when I searched Gawain. Pretty interesting . . .
