Mahler's 3rd Symphony

Dear Mr Zander,
If it were possible to distill happiness itself into the form of a CD, your recording of the Mahelr 3 would be it!
I bought it (and you signed my program, saying "You're going to love it!") at the Royal Festival Hall after your first Symphony. Of course, we music lovers are spoiled for choice these days with recordings and concerts of the most superb quality, and it is not every day that I am moved to write to a musician who has brought me great pleasure. What is different about you, though, is your desire to communicate music - your conviction (which I share) that if only people could hear and understand it, they could not fail to love it. Your pre-concert talks seem to be in the same spirit of muscial sharing - you do for Mahler's symphonies what Graham Johnson has done for Schubert's songs. It is a marvellous thing and long may it continue!
With thanks and affection,
Natasha Goldberg
