Notes & Reviews:
The sixth symphony - first performed in 1906 and sometimes referred to as "Tragic" - ends on a much sadder, almost nihilistic, note than most of the other Mahler symphonies. This imposing music is captured live in a performance marked by awesome silences and towering climaxes conjured by the Lucerne Festival Orchestra. The DVDs were filmed in August 2005 using state-of-the-art equipment to take full advantage of the new and acoustically superb Concert Hall Lucerne.Notes & Reviews:
