"Vanska's Mahler, though, felt all wrong"

Congrats to the Minnesota Orchestra on the completion of their European tour! There have been a number of stellar reviews (at least one posted to this blog earlier in the month), and Osmo seems to have the Midas Touch. But not entirely, if you're to believe Edward Seckerson in The Independent.

For those of you who heard our live broadcast of this concert, what did you think of the Mahler 5? Post your comments here. And if you didn't hear the concert, you can decide for yourself when Classical Minnesota Public Radio rebroadcasts this Proms concert on Monday Sept 4 at 8pm.
