One more belated bit of Mahler birthday celebrations, with a discovery
from the very cluttered shelves of the West Virginia Public Radio
library.In 2008, musicologist Timothy Freeze gave a talk on the subject of "Mahler and his World" with West Virginia Symphony Orchestra artistic director Grant Cooper at the Clay Center in Charleston. I wasn't able to make the talk, so the symphony kindly shared a recording with me. Now that I've recently rediscovered the CD, the WVSO said that I can also share it with you! You can stream or download the discussion below:
All the other Mahler fun is collected in yesterday's post Mahler at 151.
p.s. belated 100th birthday wishes also go out to Bernard Hermann and Gian Carlo Menotti!
