OK. I wrote my letter to Christoph Eschenbach and my publisher, Joe Derhake at Keiser Music, sent him the score of Symphony No. 1 Living Breathing Earth. I’ll let you all know when he tells me he’s performing it. Ha, ha. But at least it’s on it’s way. Now on to other things.
But first, here’s a gem–in looking for Eschenbach’s contact info, I visited his website, and saw he is streaming ALL of Mahler’s Symphonies from live performances with the Orchestre de Paris. They posted Mahler’s 5th yesterday. You can see and hear him conduct it, and you’ll see why I was so impressed with the performance in Prague. Here’s the link
