"horn players are always too busy telling everyone how difficult their instrument is to play"    .     .     .    there's a lot of truth in those words.

This sounds very fun. The first movement is a bit fast for my tastes, but if Petrenko can structure it as masterfully as he structured his recent zippy M6 (by today's standards), then we are in for something good.

Can’t wait to hear that fast finale!

From the timings, this look it could be very interesting. I'll be grabbing this. That Finale is blazing!

John,
Any idea if this will come to amazon? Or just HMV?

I don't mean to be offensive, but so many of these brass transcription projects are just so trumpet driven. This isn't for me - even if these guys and gals can play.
That's because a lot of these projects are arranged/transcribed by trumpet players, Barry. Trumpet players, and most low brass players I know, are very much  in to arranging and transcribing music. It really started when Maurice Andre began performing oboe and violin music. I'd imagine you know how little rep there is for the brass family, outside of the horn. And, horn players are always too busy telling everyone how difficult their instrument is to play, they have little time for arranging.

Oh, come on. Doing the Alpine peaks passage without a boat load of horns just sounds silly. Yes, I can see where trumpeters would get off on this. I don't mean to be offensive, but so many of these brass transcription projects are just so trumpet driven. This isn't for me - even if these guys and gals can play.

It really annoys me that they didn't complete this cycle. Without an M3, no way would I get this. I do have a few of them now. I'm more interested in the other way around. By that, I mean I hope DG will be allowed to issue a separate Abbado/Lucerne Mahler and Bruckner box on CD's (and whatever else there was from Lucerne). For that, it would be great if they included Chailly's Lucerne M8 performance (Abbado had already passed away, so #8 went to Chailly).

Well, it's official. We aren't getting a Chailly Leipzig M3. Accentus is putting the whole cycle (1–2, 4–9) in a box set. For some reason M3 is listed in the contents of the box, though it won't contain it; probably a typo on Presto's end.

For anyone who hasn't seen/heard these yet: this is the video Mahler cycle to get. Sub in Abbado's Lucerne M3 and you're all set.

Wow! This is a treasure. I shared this with a friend of mine, a tuba player, who loves Strauss. This looks like a blast to perform.

Yeah, you're right. Regardless of any nitpicky "complaints" I have I'm sure it will still be a very good M9.
