I already have two fine recording of Mahler's Symphony No.4 - Maazel with the Vienna Philharmonic (Kathleen Battle) and James Levine with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra (Judith Blegen) - both on LP's.

The Silver Violin ~ Nicola Benedetti
What a joy to hear the violin being played not only so expertly but with that added verve that instantly communicates so much more to the listener. A great ambassador for the violin and music in general.
