Written when the composer was only in his late twenties, Mahler's first symphony is a study in optimism.

In this vast symphony, we hear his love of nature and beauty, Mahler's childhood memories, fragments of distant military music, birdsong and even Yiddish folk tunes as they blend together into a paean to life and hope

Music director Michael Tilson Thomas and the musicians of the San Francisco Symphony go from the salons of St. Petersburg to the villages where Stravinsky found inspiration in the earthy power of Russian folk music and dance. Thomas then retraces Stravinsky's journey to the cultural crossroads of pre-war Paris, where the composer collaborates with the great impresario Diaghilev and his star dancer Nijinsky to develop the shocking, erotic, and violent evocation of pagan Russia that became The Rite of Spring. Includes a live performance of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring and music from The Firebird by the San Francisco Symphony, with Thomas conducting
Symphonie fantastique by Hector Berlioz( )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die unglückliche Liebe von Hector Berlioz zu einer Schauspielerin führte in nur 2 Monaten 1830 zur Komposition seiner Symphony fantastique. Sie gehört inzwischen zu den wohl populärsten Werken der klassischen Musik. Als "musikalisches Drama" mit dem Untertitel Episoden aus dem Leben eines Künstlers konzipiert, folgt das 5-sätzige Werk einem szenischen Programm, das bei der Uraufführung als Text an das Publikum verteilt wurde. Mit dieser revolutionären Neuorientierung der Form schuf Berlioz die Grundlage für das Genre der sinfonischen Dichtung, die im Lauf des 19. Jahrhunderts viele Meisterwerke hervorbrachte. Gekoppelt ist die Fantastische Sinfonie mit der viel gespielten, temperamentvollen Ouvertüre Römischer Karneval aus der Oper Benvenuto Cellini. Die Fantastische Sinfonie ist unverzichtbar für alle Bibliotheken, diese Interpretation von Jos van Immerseel und dem Ensemble Anima Eterna Brugge auf historischen Instrumenten ziert jeden Bestand
