All this week, Morning Glories will feature what we at Classical MPR have deemed five must-have symphonies. Tune in at 10 a.m. to hear them live, but if you miss them on the air, we'll be revealing each one right here on the blog every day.
We'll also have individual lists from our different hosts, and today it's Alison Young's! Enjoy!
Without always listing specific performances, here are some symphonies I would love to share with others, in no special order:
All of the Brahms symphones.
Beethoven 3,5 and 9.
Mahler complete with as many by Klaus Tennstedt as possible and rest by Bernstein.
Copland 3, Dorati and Mpls. Symphony or Bernstein.
Vaughan-Williams 2,3,4,5,7 all by Bouldt.
Messiaen (sp?) "Turangalila" (sp?) symphony.
Nielsen 5, Bernstein
Silbelius 2, Phila. Orch, Ormandy'
Carlos Chavez, "Sinfonia India" (??)
These are all great, but I am SURE I selected Mahler 2 rather than Dvorak 8...I may just have to play both!
I'm sorry you dropped Dvorak 8, but I cannot quite fit it in. Here are my 5, in alphabetical order:
