Thanks for your comments. Always good to get feedback. I am, as you can see from the Preface to the Mahler survey, half way through an update from the original version. The time it is taking me is entirely due to home circumstances which are also the reason why I do not do very much reviewing of new releases these days. When I do get to the update of the Ninth symphony survey I will most certainly include the Maderna recording which I rate very highly.
Regarding the Walter/Klemperer moralist/immoralist point, you may well be right about the extra words. I do think that even without them, though, the creative dichotomy between the two conductors is still made,.
Sorry about the typo. Keyboard skills were never my string suit.
I am working on the update for the Seventh at the moment.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
