We’d like to invite any regular readers to visit YouTube and search for Mahler.
We found out today that for some bizarre reason, the number 1 search result on YouTube for Mahler is the first mvt. of Kindertotenlieder with me conducting baritone Jesus Suaste and the State of Mexico Symphony. Bernstein is number 2, Simon Rattle is 3-5 and Claudio Abbado is no. 6.
I want to make completely clear that we did not engineer this in any way, but I’m happy to ask readers to click through to KTL so we keep the ranking.
We have set up a channel of KW clips on YouTube, called Downbeat TV.
Check it out.
