Great news! I always cherished Neeme Järvi's 1995 recording of Des Jonah Sendung; he toured with it around the Baltic Sea in that year, IIRC.

… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.  RVW, 1948
