A/Does this mean he's actually listened or seen all of these conductors?
B/ It sounds like the random categorization by an amateur adolescent with too much spare time.
C/ If anyone can put Zdeneck Kosler in the second tier, ahead of Kurt Sanderling, relegated to Tier 3, should be made to listen to the Kosler Prokofiev 6th Symphony. Kosler's is available in a Supraphon Set, Sanderling's on an obscure bootleg label, a recording made in about 2000. a concert with the Rotterdam Philharmonic. I quote>
" I talked to a fair number of people who seemed pretty excited about this Sixth - which they, indeed, had not been too familiar with before. (IMO there is no really good cd recording of this work either.) My wife was happy. I unfortunately was not. This was not nearly as good as Sanderling's Sixth, in which every phrase sang and the entire symphony was a story about beauty, love, suffering and just plain fun. More and more I come to realise that two of the greatest concert experiences in my life were Sanderling concerts - Prokofiev 6 in Rotterdam and Schubert 9 in Minneapolis. This man is really something else.
I'm going to listen to the radio broadcast of the same concert later this afternoon, but I'm posting this anyway.
