Santtu-Matias Rouvali/PO Mahler 2nd released today

Santtu-Matias Rouvali/PO Mahler 2nd just came out.

It is essentially a young person's take on the symphony: fast, dramatic, raw, wild, and volatile.

I quite like it.

I quite like it. So does DH.

The ending, as Dave indicated, has that unnecessary accelerando in the tutti climax. It sounded akward and jarring at first but after several listens I've come to rather like it this way^
