Close to perfect

The following BBC Prom available until Friday:

A pickup group called the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester performing the following:

Ligeti: Atmospheres (yes, the one that Kubrick used)
Mahler: Kindertotenlieder, with Matthias Goerne
Schoenberg: Five pieces for Orchestra

Interval: Roger Scruton and A.C. Greyling discuss Vienna, Strauss, Mahler, Nietzsche, and Wittgenstein

Second half is a piece by Strauss also used by Kubrick......

(Oh, and if you live in the UK, you can actually watch a streamed HD videotape of the whole thing.)

Why is our public radio so lame?
