I think his Adagietto from the 5th is the best version of all. But I also like anything conducted by Horenstein. And Karajan seemed to be able to do a creditable job with Mahler.

Can't comment on Horenstein as I don't have any recordings of his. But I agree with you on the Adagietto of the 5th and Karajan. I Also like Chicago Symphony Orchestra's Mahler for their strong brass.

Re: DVD Haul

That's quite the present! I love Lee Evans. I have all the DVDs that would come in the box set (I think...)

I didn't buy these myself, but my uncle gave me Dark Water and the Doll Master. He's not keen on films with subtitles, but as I rather like them and really enjoy the creepy East Asian films that are in the similar ilk of The Ring and et al, I asked for them.

Re: DVD Haul

Managed to get my grubby paws on one I've been looking for a long time - namely Alan Bleasedale's GBH on DVD. Drama, madness and corruption at its finest and it's mine, all mine I tell you!

Re: DVD Haul

Received Evgeny Kissin - Plays Schubert/Brahms/Bach/Liszt/Gluck. Another film of Kissin by classical music film maker Christopher Nupen. Recorded in studio back in 1990, not sure why it's released just now. It's a platter of supremely divine performances, especially the Schubert-Liszt 5 Lieder and Schubert 'Wanderer' Fantasy, immensely beautiful. Kissin is a true keyboard poet.

Re: DVD Haul

Just the one which I brought back from London. And it's not from the pirates either. Terry Pratchett's Hogfather. Have not had a chance to watch it yet though.

Re: DVD Haul

This is a bit obscure (but I do love the obscure) Panzer - Germany's Ultimate War Machine.

What I really like about this DVD is the inclusion of a little-seen training film from 1943. I now know how to stop a Panther Tank with just a machine gun and a hand grenade.

Bound to come in handy someday
