That's because Neeme Järvi is getting on a bit and may have some back problems. The Mahler 3 is even longer, around 100 minutes. We used to listen to Mahler a lot in my young days — much grass was smoked. You should listen to the Des Knaben Wunderhorn and Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen song cycles.

I have discovered an absolutely marvellous pianist called Ekaterina Derzhavina, whose 9 CD set of the complete Haydn piano sonatas I've managed to obtain. To show her talent, here is the first movement, Moderato, of the Piano Sonata No. 34, Hob.XVI:19. She is playing a modern piano, I'm guessing a Steinway.

Take my advice, don't listen to me.
