    Does anyone have/ know where to get a Mahler Grooves sticker? I saw once one on the score of leonard bernstein's Mahler 6 score and have wanted to know if they are still around ever since. Thanks!

    Well the Symphonies do have some great grooves! ;)
  5. Yes, I read that.

    I think it's hilarious, really. Instead of "Mahler Lives" as the article suggests, Mahler doesn't just live on in musical and symphonic repertoire, but Mahler Grooves.

    I actually saw the New York Philharmonic play Mahler's Fifth with Emmanuel Ax as a pre-symphony soloist a few months ago. It was Emmanuel's 100th performance with the Philharmonic, so that was pretty special to see. I saw him play a Debussy piece that I really enjoyed and another impressionist piece I don't particularly like. But I feel as if I would have had more time to listen to it, I would have been able to appreciate it a little better. But Mahler's fifth required no pre-listening, it just comes right out and grabs you. I wish I could hear it again soon--it was a great experience and the final bars were absolutely visceral. I can see why Leonard Bernstein was buried with his copy of the score.
