Seriously....Bernard Haitink has just become unbelievable. I used to find his stuff, particularly his recent stuff, deadly dull. But the new Brahms, Mahler, Bruckner (not the Beethoven though), it's the hand of a total master.

(Bruckner 7's slow movement. My candidate for the greatest - orchestral - slow movement of all time. I have yet to hear a conductor handle it better than Haitink.)
