Programme Details

Interpretation of Mahler’s richly varied music gives much space to conductors. While there are a number of recorded versions of Mahler’s symphonies, many of them regarded as classics, the question as to which recorded version is the best often becomes a heated topic of discussion among music lovers and hi-fi addicts alike. In recent years, with the great technological development of video recording, we are also offered some very good live video recordings of great Mahler concerts. In this hi-fi and hi-vi concert, Savio Lau and Janet Yeung, editors of the Music and Audio/Visual Sections respectively of the leading local classical music magazine Hi Fi Review, joined by several music critics in a forum, discuss the music interpretation, sound, and ideas of Mahler.  Mahler recordings will be played, with the aid of hi-end equipment which guarantees an evening of appreciation of music and hi-fi/hi-vi at their most seductive. 
Video excerpts from concerts on DVD/ Blu ray to be played include:
- Symphony No. 1 (Conductor: Michael Tilson Thomas)
- Symphony No. 8 (Conductor: Leonard Bernstein)
- Das Lied von der Erde (Conductor: Semyon Bychkov/ Alto: Waltraud Meier)
- Symphony No. 6 (Conductor: Claudio Abbado)
- Symphony No. 9 (Conductor: Claudio Abbado)
- Symphony No. 3 (Conductor: Takashi Asahina)
