    Listening to Mahler´s 2nd symphonie right now. It is awesome and epic, but, it´s soooo long.

    I like shorter symphonies.

    Edit: I had to skip "Ulricht", the second to last movement; I can´t stand such singing!

    Edit 2: Okay, the last movement had more singing; had to stop listening. That´s not for me !

    I used to take my dad to I Musici de Montreal concerts. It was to repay him for the many, many years of Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal, and McGill Chamber Orchestra concerts of my youth. He would always buy a series, and we'd go every week -- often twice. My father encouraged my violin lessons, and paid for private conducting lessons with Brock McEleran. I never became a conductor, and my violin playing still sounds like I'm torturing cats, but my dad did open up a whole world to me. Paying for an I Musici series seemed like the least I could so. And besides, it was a cheap ticket -- a major consideration when I was 18. In any event, it was in one of those series that I got hooked on Benjamin Britten. I was moderately familiar with Britten's music -- the Ceremony of Carols, of course, the War Requiem, A Midsummer Night's Dream, the Young Person's Guide -- but I had never really listened to the more intimate works like the Simple Symphony, and escpecially Lachrymae. When I Musici did an all-Britten program (at Salle Vincent d'Indy, I think), I was blown away by the depth of all of it. Since then, Britten's music has been a central part of my aural space of contemplation.
