This one is clearly for completists, soundwise I would rate it 6 out of 10. But it is a nice historical performance by the early Yes with still Tony Kaye onboard. First italian tour for the band that played Roma the day after. Pretty standard set for that period. Opening for Yes on that show it was a nice, rather unknown italian band with no records available yet but playing mostly covers and some of their compositions. The band was called Premiata Forneria Marconi...

I found this, just in case of a need for great music!

Gustav Mahler - The 10 Symphonies

2007; 58 tracks
Simon Rattle / Berliner Philharmoniker

Gustav Mahler was a late-Romantic composer of Austrian / Bohemian descent.

I'd like it if I knew more about him, but at the moment I am at a loss of clever, insightful information regarding one of classical music's most famous contributor. Here are the 10 symphonies, no choral works can be found here.

The tenth symphony was Mahler's final work before his death, but he never fully completed the piece. Quite a few others have tried to finalize the work, tying up loose ends and such, but there is one attempt that has become a sort of standard for performances and recordings, and that is the revision of Deryck Cooke. There is much more information to be found on the subject here, and I'm only so interested in it because it is my favorite out of the ten.

Symphony No. 1 in D Major, "Titan"
Symphony No. 2 in C minor, "Resurrection"
Symphony No. 3 in D minor
Symphony No. 4 in G Major
Symphony No. 5 in C-sharp minor
Symphony No. 6 in A minor, "Tragic"
Symphony No. 7 in E minor, "Song of the Night"
Symphony No. 8 in E-flat Major, "Symphony of a Thousand"
Symphony No. 9 in D Major
Symphony No. 10 in F-sharp minor
