Ok, next time I do M6 I'll listen to my Boulez---   it will be interesting to compare.

In the Nott vs. Stenz department, in the case of M6 I prefer the Stenz one. Both are good. Boulez/VPO is just so perfectly proportioned, in my book.

It seems kind of weird to me. Also, outer movements too slow for a chamber version.

There are Dorati's M1, M4, M6, M7, M9 recordings available on amazon.co.uk.
During Dorati's Washington years, I was able to hear him conduct all Mahler symphonies, except M7 and M8.  I seem to recall hearing him conduct the M10 Adagio, though I can't recall exactly for sure.

On a Mac you use option-u and then type the letter where you want the umlaut. As in Hübsch.

There are also French grave and acute accents available. Option-e yields an acute accent (sloping to the right) over the next letter. French for doctor: médecin.

French grave is option-`(accent key to the left of the number row). French very: très.

There are other diacritical marks accessed in similar ways.

These show on my screen and may show up in the post.

Let's not forget

Harding/BRSO
Stenz/GOK
Nott/BSO

There is also a new SACD of Paavo Jarvi conducting a Japanese orchestra whose audio samples sound pretty good.

The broadcast tape of Dorati doing M6 in Chicago is legendary. I've never heard it.

Yes, I think he did excellent work with the BBC Phil. (Manchester). I'm sure he's a good catch for the National Symphony.
A friend of mine who attends National Symphony concerts feels that Noseda was a good choice for music director of the National Symphony.  I personally, have never seen him conduct, though I've listened to various non-Mahler CDs by him and found them pretty decent.  But my favorite times for Mahler with the NSO were during the Dorati years, and a M6 I heard him conduct was the best Mahler performance I ever heard to come from him.
