    Finally got around to listening to the National Youth Orch at the Proms - always a highlight of the season for me. Life-affirming, in fact.

    I don't know whether it's the performance or the recording - or both - but this one is a cracker!

    I have to agree, I think it's an inspired (and inspiring) performance.

    A tenuous local link with this one. I first heard Dag Wirren's Serenade for Stings back in November 1979 at a live recording of the BBC Welsh Symphony Orchestra for BBC Radio 3 recorded in their Llandaff studio in Cardiff. It sticks in my memory because it was the first time I had heard live classical music.

    BBC Radio3: Mahler1. This is going to be my next purchase - when I find out which recording it is. Sounds wonderful.

    Most kind. I was simply waiting for Andrew McGregor to provide chapter and verse, and enjoying it. :)

    The download doesn't seem to be available yet but I'll keep checking back. The sota recording had that appealing clarity which compensates for not actually 'being there'.

    Another local link for me, I heard the New London Consort with Philip Pickett perform Carmina Burana on period intruments live in Llandaff Cathedral in Cardiff many years ago.

    I have just ordered the above CDs after much deliberation (reading reviews etc) and my natural inclination to dither. It is so indulgent to spend so much money on myself but I am really looking forward to them dropping through my letter box.

    Thanks to those posters on here and the other website who brought these to my attention in the first place.
