Concert with Claudio Abbado to mark the 100th anniversary of Gustav Mahler’s death

With this concert from 18 May 2011, the Berliner Philharmoniker commemorated the 100th anniversary of Gustav Mahler’s death. Claudio Abbado, with whom the orchestra gave many moving Mahler performances, conducts here two works to mark the event which seem like elegiac meditations on the finiteness of all life: Das Lied von der Erde with Anne Sofie von Otter and Jonas Kaufmann as – and the Adagio from the Tenth Symphony.
