I'm really looking forward to hearing this release. If it weren't for the second tier soprano, I really, really like Sado's M4. I also think he's made as good an argument - musically speaking - as one can make for reinserting "Blumine" into the second movement position in M1. It should be up on Spotify in seven more days (today is Feb. 23).

I have the Paavo Jarvi/Frankfurt DVD that has M7 and M8. The M7 is great. He sounds less comfortable with the 8th, but it was just his first rodeo with that work. When he gets around to doing it in Zurich, it should sound really good in there. Also, now that J. Nott is conducting in Geneva, it would be great if he did an M8 in the excellent acoustics of the Victoria Hall there.

Don’t forget about the eventual Paavo Järvi one, if the alleged news of him doing a cycle is true.

How is he with the 7th?

Fair enough. Whatever the reasons, the BRSO one made a lot bigger impression on me. If HMU issues the SwRSO 7th, I'll check it out on Spotify. For the mean time, I'm looking forward to the Y. Sado/Tonkunstler M7, as well as an eventual Bychkov/Czech Phil. one. I imagine someday there will be a Jaap van Zweden one. A Dudamel remake with the N.Y. Phil. would be nice too.

Just for the record, both of Harding's M7ths with BRSO and SRSO run 76 min.

No John, I'm really not interested enough to bother. I'll take your word for it. As I said, I'll 'wait and see' for if and when it finally turns up on Spotify. I'm actually quite happy with the Vanska, where the first movement is a bit longer, SOOOOoooo, that when the main theme of the first movement shows up towards the end of the finale, Vanska brings it in at a slower, not faster tempo. To me, that makes a whole lot of sense.

I thought the first Nocturne (second movement) was best one on this Harding performance.

That's not what I got, and I measured them off myself. I didn't include the dead space after any movement. Regardless, I wasn't crazy about it. It'll be a 'wait and see' situation for me, regarding any possible recording. I still liked the BRSO one more.

Here are the correct timings of the Harding/SWRSO M7th:

21'35", 15'52", 9'04", 12'09", 16'54"

Total = 76 min.

My "awesome" was in response to your words, John. I hadn't listened to it yet. We shall see. I wish BR Klassik would issue their Harding M7, but they're probably saving the 7th for Rattle.
