Yesterday something strange happened. After a morning of hard work, partly composing, I decided to get some rest with Mahler's 6th. And you know what? After the first 10 minutes I "killed" my stereo equipment completely fed up with the chaos of harmonies, the never ending, the endless repetitions of part 1.
It never happened to me before and I wondered what this was? The composer is famous, the orchestra is the Royal Concertgebouw, the recording building was that same Concertgebouw (Amsterdam), the conductor Ricardo Chailly... but it must have been my ears, mind, mood........
