Notes & Reviews:
The Symphony No. 6 in A minor by Gustav Mahler, sometimes referred to as the Tragische ("Tragic"), was composed between 1903 and 1904 (rev. 1906). The tragic ending of No. 6 has been seen - by application of the 3 hollow hammer resounds in the Finale - according to the words by Alma, as an anticipation of the 3 serious strokes of fate following in his life 3 years later: The death of his oldest daughter, his demission by the Wiener Hofoper caused by intrigue and the diagnose of his incurable heart disease. This is a recording that will be eagerly sought out by Mahler enthusiasts around the globe - not only for historic value, but as a document of one of Mahler's most innovative and courageous.Notes & Reviews:
