Mahler Symphony No 6 Blu-Ray

Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, Riccardo Chailly (conductor)

'The audience knows that the performance of a Mahler symphony is not only a musical experience, but is also emotionally effective,' remarks Riccardo Chailly. This counts especially for Mahler's enigmatic Sixth Symphony, an emotionally stirring challenge for both performers and listeners, while also being one of the most impressive of symphonic works. Chailly's interpretation with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra is 'intensely great' (Die Presse). 'Chailly uncompromisingly considers this sixth symphony through the lens of modernity; looking forward, not retrospectively staying in ''late romantic''. In this celebrated orchestra, all sections splendidly come together and fulfil an ''open'' sound, conserving while respecting its original beauty' (Salzburger Nachrichten). Recorded live at the Gewandhaus zu Leipzig in September 2012. Bonus film - 'My Sixth will propound riddles': a panel discussion with Riccardo Chailly and Reinhold Kubik.
