If you go here you can listen and watch the UC Davis orchestra play Mahler’s Symphony No. 2. So far it’s a very nice performance, and I didn’t realize that UCD had such a large orchestra. There’s some nice oboe playing, and the camera seems to like her so we see her a good amount. So far the camera folk don’t seem to be able to focus on the English horn player, but maybe later ..?

I read about this at Classically Hip.

I miss Mahler. It is doubtful that Symphony Silicon Valley could manage to do Mahler in the new hall. It’s just too small to fit a large orchestra on stage. So sad.

    So we’ll be spared Mahler at SSV?  Thank God for some favors.

    Mahler is one of my favorite composers, so I don’t consider it a favor.

    To each his own, I suppose.
