Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Mahler that leaps to my mind is Das Lied von der Erde. A housemate had a copy of the Bruno Walter recording in '62 or 63 and we played it over and over on a pretty good sound system. It also made me a fan of Li Po's poetry, such as it is in translation. I memorized much of Das Trinkleid in German from the recording and the libretto and still (mis?)recall it. It seems appropriate to this diary.
