Friday was a festive night in Costa Mesa. Celebrating the opening of the fall season at Segerstrom Hall and, simultaneously, the beginning of its 37th year of concert sponsorship, the Orange County Philharmonic Society presented the Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam. The mighty ensemble hadn't appeared locally since 1985, and a few things had changed in the interim. The adjective Royal had been appended to the Concertgebouw label in recognition of the orchestral centenary in 1988.

The ethical issues about playing Mahler's Tenth Symphony--which the composer left on his death as basically a complete, but only partially orchestrated, first draft--remain open, but the aesthetic question is firmly answered with these two discs: in orchestrator Deryck Cooke's performing version this is thrilling, deeply moving music. Rattle has been here before, recording his own adaptation of Cooke's version of the piece with the Bournemouth Symphony.

Amsterdam's Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, one of the Netherlands' great cultural treasures and one of the world's most critically acclaimed and recorded orchestras, is an institution steeped in tradition. Ever since the days of Willem Mengelberg, who led the orchestra from 1895 to 1945, the orchestra has honed a signature sound especially admired in music of the late Romantic period.

Both of these recordings purport to use the recent critical edition, but only Muti's is the real thing. No official mention of an edition of any kind is made in the actual London release. Apparently, such reference is too complicated for American consumers. British purchasers, however, get a program note from Chailly explaining that he consulted with the singers before deciding to keep in certain "performance traditions."

Two years ago, when conductor Riccardo Chailly became the director of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam, an Italian, not a Dutchman, became sole leader of one of Holland's great cultural treasures and one of the finest orchestras in the world. With the exception of a short stint by German conductor Eugen Jochum as co-director in the early 1960s, this is the first time in the 102-year tradition of the orchestra that someone outside the Netherlands has held that position.

"You'll be pleasantly surprised. I promise you. It has melodies , really gorgeous ones--like Brahms and Tchaikovsky." The foregoing generic sales pitch for non-frightening works by frightening composers may not be particularly effective, but you have to keep trying, right? And you can never get away with such a bluntly passionate exhortation as: "Forget the composer's name! Just listen!" We're talking about the likes of the young Arnold Schoenberg's schmaltzy "Verklarte Nacht."
