Mahler: Symphony No. 1 / Horenstein, LSO (Unicorn)
My favorite recording of this symphony.

 

When I got home, this was in my mailbox. Now listening:

71gmd-SEF8L._SX425_.jpg

Mahler: Symphony No. 7 / Abbado, BPO (DG)
Very impressive so far.  But I'll need to give it half-a-dozen listens before I know where it fits in my totally subjective scheme of M7s. ;)

soulpope, thanks for that list of interesting M1s.  I wasn't aware of that recording by Barbirolli.  I may have to investigate. ;)

Prompted by soulpope's mention of Barbirolli (above):

At its best, Barbirolli's music-making seems intensely personal -- whether the composer is Mahler, Sibelius, Dvořák, Vaughan Williams, Elgar . . .

Bach -- Dynastie

(family concertos, JS, WF, CPE, JC)

Jean Rondeau

51xXUTD5VrL._SS500.jpg

 

Rondeau's "moments of metronomic freedom," as one reviewer put it, infuse these concertos by JS Bach and sons with excitement, personality and ... fun. 

Harpsichord out front with violin, viola, cello, contrabass and bassoon. 

I'd say if there's a recording that could turn someone on to the harpsichord who otherwise might be a bit leery of the instrument, this fits the bill.

The only slight criticism I might have is that there are times where Rondeau gets overpowered by the other instruments, but that's just the nature of the beast, I suppose.
