Kerstmatinee 2014 - Mahler, Jansons, Concertgebouw LINK

Live in the Netherlands on Christmas Day - now available on demand, online for a limited period on NP (Netherlands Public Broadcasting) - Mahler Symphony no 4, Mariss Jansons conducts the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra with Anna Prohaska (perhaps the most ideal soloist for this piece at the moment).  FOLLOW THIS LINK. Kerstmatinees were a grand Dutch tradition for many, many years so it's wonderful to have them revived. Collections of them were issued on recordings, and became collectors' items. This performance is so sparkling and vivid - enjoy !
