Kirill Petrenko conducts Mahler’s Sixth Symphony

For the first time, Kirill Petrenko presents himself with the Berliner Philharmoniker as an interpreter of Mahler. The Sixth Symphony is one of the composer’s most disturbing works, bringing together turmoil and idyll, triumph and catastrophe, nature, and life and death. It conveys a world panorama as well as an intimate insight into Mahler’s inner world. For as his widow Alma explained, “No work has flowed from his heart as directly as this”.
