Good contrasting performances, Guido - in 'comparison' I prefer the Reiner performance - a bit more up & down within the gallery of pictures (Dorati seems almost hurried and off-hand by comparison). But both are great finds - YET AGAIN!Reiner's Great Gate is truly stupendous - I think he was urging his tam-tam player to give it some welly as pay-back time for the very bronchial audience in Carneige Hall that March (must have been a long Winter!). I wouldn't have wanted them looking around the gallery let alone at a musical performance.All the Best.
Thanks for your appreciation!And I agree, Reiner version is far better... Apart from the cough :)About Dorati: I like the Minneapolis stereo recording more than this, but certainly he's not one of my fav "Pictures" conductors.
Hi Guido,What a great post! Dorati is also one of my favorite conductors. I also post his Mahler 6th with Israel PO recently at carloskleiber.blogspot.com. (http://carloskleiber.blogspot.com/2011/08/dorati-conducts-mahler-symphony-no-6.html) You are welcomed to take a look. I will appreciate if you would also add my blog to your blog list.Thanks,
Dear Guido,Thank You very much. Gabor
