    Guitarist Kazuhito Yamashita plays two insanely difficult concertos written for him by Takashi Yamatsu and Teruyuki Noda.

    Iconic in what sense ? How does it compare with 5'ths by Abbado , Kubelik , Bernstein ... Do not recall Herr Karajan get a mention in any of Tony Duggan's picks .

    Well, it's been well received by others, just look at who's performing it, and an omission from some "critic's" list hardly negates it worth and enjoyment for me.

    Point taken , if a performance speaks to you that's all that matters . I did sample it on Apple Music and quite liked it too , if only prettier overall compared to the other 5ths . Maybe due to Herr Karajans ideology , that it must always sound "good".On the other hand I would hardly classify Tony Duggan as "some critic" , especially where Mahler is concerned . Look forward to more of your posts . Happy Listening .

    Some of you may be surprised to learn that Anthony Burgess, author of A Clockwork Orange, was also a composer, and quite a fine one at that. He writes in a busy, quasi-tonal style that certainly must challenge the players. Very good playing and sound--which does capture a few harsh notes in the heat of the moment.

    A crushingly intense performance of No.2. Very good sound.

    Beautifully played (I'm slowly coming to terms with vibrato-less playing in Baroque repertoire!) and recorded.

    Halasz plays with tremendous feeling and virtuosity. Excellent sound, though I'm not a fan of his type of guitar, a Matthias Dammann "double-top."
