Music to listen to before you emigrate to a desert island

For any singer or instrumentalist listening to music is an essential aid to performance interpretation and style. Music also enriches our lives, particularly in difficult times.

“Music can name the unnameable and communicate the unknowable.”
Leonard Bernstein

Symphony no. 8 - Mahler

A recording from 1959. I think this is the best recording ever of this 'out of this world' epic, with great attention to detail and tempo and all the finer points of Mahler's scoring come through clearly.
