Philharmonia Interuptus from NYC

Hey David,
I was just in Central Park listening to the NY philharmonic and we got thunder & lighteninged out in the middle of Mahler's symphony #1 in D major they never got to finish the piece. Could you PLEASE play it for me. Love your work

I heard you play a selection by Gareth Dickson last weekend and you did not say that one of the songs was by Captain Beefheart.
Although I am sure that you did or my now already know.
