Simon Rattle conducts Mahler’s Sixth Symphony

“A more awake, sharp, or meaningful Mahler is unlikely to be found at the moment,” was one critic’s view of this 2011 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.
