"Barham JM. Rethinking Mahler. New York : Oxford University Press

Abstract

Rethinking Mahler comprises a collection of essays by leading and emerging scholars in the field. It commemorates the composer’s anniversary years (2010-11) by offering reassessment of his engagement both with the immediate creative and cultural present of the late nineteenth century, and with the weight of a creative and cultural past that was the inheritance of artists living and working at that time. Its authors explore Mahler’s relationship with music, media and ideas present and past in three themed sections, addressing between them issues in structural analysis, performance, genres of stage, screen and literature, cultural movements, aesthetics, history/historiography and temporal experience."

Presto Classical still has it cheaper, even with shipping, and with a one week earlier release date.

You will be able to download the Fischer Mahler 3 directly from their site the minute it's released. CD quality is 13 bucks. If you use their new beta site, you can get an additional 25% off as well.

Once Fischer gets his Mahler symphony cycle complete, I'll buy it.  So far, I have only his M2, which is outstanding.  Anyone know his stand on M10?

.    .     .   or his stand on M8, for that matter. Channel Classics had originally announced that Fischer's Mahler would NOT be a 'complete' cycle. I took that for code that he doesn't care for the 8th. But as I suggested - somewhat seriously - he and his brother (Adam) could combine forces for a truly large M8. One brother could conduct Part I, while the other gets Part II. Something like that.

I'll bet those are pretty good, too. I used to see him conduct the S.F. Symphony.

Pesek recorded an excellent M9 in Liverpool. The Czech National Symphony Orchestra has done very fine recordings of works by Fibich (with Marek Štilec, a very promising young conductor) and Voříšek, but a Mahler's symphony is a more complex affair. I am curious to find out how they managed, but, apart from M1, M2, M4 & M5 which a are a bit expensive, the complete cycle seems to be available only in Czech Republic.

Another missed opportunity...and frustration to collectors. How hard would it have been to add DLVDE to this set? I can see omitting the song cycles, but surely any Mahler symphony set should include DLVDE...like the Inbal set on Denon. I still want to hear this set, though. Pesek is a fine conductor who is fully at home with middle European style and sound. His recording of Schmidt's 3rd was terrific. And it's only about $50 - a deal.

I'd say that $2.98 could be a better deal (https://www.amazon.com/Franz-Schmidt-Symphony-Conducting-Philharmonic/dp/B000WL19OI/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1489518827&sr=1-1&keywords=B000WL19OI).

Sorry, I was really unclear. The Pesek/Mahler set is about $50 - not the Schmidt. I paid nearly $20 for that Schmidt some 30 years ago. Is that all my beloved cds are worth anymore?
