Mahler: Symphony no 6 / Tennstedt, London PO

Album Summary

>Mahler, Gustav : Symphony no 6 in A minor "Tragic"
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Mahler once remarked to Sibelius "a symphony must be like the world, it must embrace everything." His Sixth Symphony is a salient and personal statement, containing musical depictions of his wife and children. It reaches a tragic conclusion in the Finale representing "the hero, on whom fall three blows of fate, the last of which fells him as a tree is felled." Klaus Tennstedt's interpretations of Mahler during his celebrated partnership with the London Philharmonic Orchestra bear testimony to the way Mahler composed his life.
