    One of my favourite Vaughan-Williams pieces, always thought how Russian some parts feel.

    I cut my teeth on Chailly’s Mahler many years ago, so I quite like his interpretations in general since it was one of my first experiences with this composer. I’ve since listened to other cycles that I think are better overall, but nevertheless this is a very well-played and recorded cycle that I’m glad to have. Chailly is always interesting in this type of repertoire from my perspective.

    I think the 3rd and 9th from Chailly’s cycle are outstanding, but the rest aren’t up to snuff. He is excellent in Germanic music --- I love his Zemlinsky, Schoenberg and Hindemith for example. I’d love to have heard him more in Berg’s music, though as I think he would do well here, but, to my knowledge, has only recorded the Seven Early Songs with soprano Barbara Bonney.

    This particular movement struck me as immensely charming. From the Italian Baroque box set I recently purchased - and take with me via YouTubeMusic.

    Speaking of Chailly, the SACD twofer below is among the very few of his recordings in my collection ...

    I see from another thread that you have the Masur-PentaTone SACD/multi-channel set. What do you think of that (especially from an SQ standpoint - I can listen to the Philips non-SACD versions on Spotify)?
