A live version of Mahler's 8th, recorded in Basel in 2001.  15 choirs indeed!  Amazing symphony.

The Bach cantata series from the Bach-Stiftung in St. Gallen. They'reworking their way through the cantatas and many of them are on YouTube. Here's an example:

Absolutely beautiful.  Mahler would be counted among the greats just on the basis of these songs.

Elgar's Sea Pictures arranged for Piano and Mezzo by the composer. On R3 today, different from the orchestral version but imho very lovely

An interesting early work by Mahler.  Not up to the standard of his later works but shows great promise and he used some of the music in later symphonies.
