Simon Rattle conducts Mahler’s Sixth Symphony

“There could hardly be a more awake, more clear-sighted, more meaningful Mahler at the moment”, wrote the Tagesspiegel in 2011 about this performance of Mahler’s Sixth Symphony with Simon Rattle. This work certainly gives orchestras the opportunity to show their full potential. Mahler breaks new ground in orchestration, for example in the finale with its legendary hammer blows. But also in terms of intensity of expression, Mahler demands everything from his interpreters.
