'Some conductors are starting to realize how deep the problem is : they can see an incredible quantity of great professional BUT also some almost amateur orchestras are able to play a Mahler symphony, with great commitment and sense of the music's character, but are totally unable to play a Mozart symphony.'
Part of a comment left by Théo Bélaud on Specialisation is damaging classical music. That great Mozart interpreter Bruno Walter gave the first performance of Mahler's Das Lied von der Erde and Ninth Symphony. More on Bruno Walter here.
