Walter’s recordings of Mahler’s Second, Fourth, Fifth, and Ninth Symphonies ain’t too shabby, either. Nor is his of Das Lied von der Erde.

Well that was worth it. And I guess you make may so bold in your mild criticism of Bach. Yet that is what always appealed to me before I could even understand what Bach does and so effortlessly too. Well it sounds effortless until you ask the musicians called upon to play it. Yes it is mathematically precise but it is advanced mathematically precise. Which is, I suppose, why it was always the background music when I used to do that sort of math. Sure,Brandenburg Concertos. Goldberg variations great. But the elegant simplicity of his cello suites does it for me.
