    Has any one seen the CSO/Barenboim DVD of Mahler 5?

    Is it just me, or does the brass seems to get ‘the hand’ a lot?

    It's a great DVD, Bud plays his a** off and it never ceases to amaze me how incredible he is, even at such an elderly age. Not to mention it's always awesome to watch Barenboim work his stuff. Another good to check out is the Berlin Mahler 5 DVD, I can't remember who conducts off the top of my head, but it's good stuff.

    5th DVD

    Yes, it's a great DVD. The entire brass section sounds fantastic.

    Yes, I agree that the brass gets a lot of the hand, but that does not seem to hold Bud Herseth back. He just keeps on... he gets so red when he plays doesn't he? Of course, his white hair really contrasts the face. What a great player... and gentleman... I've never met him... but at the end of the Mahler, he gets a loud and long applause from the audience... he just bows humbly... I know of many other performers (no names) that have been recognized in such a way and then I see the nose in the air... he is truly a gentleman.

    Also, I love the rose thing at the end. He sticks his horn out with the bell up to receive the rose from Barenboim.
