Daniel Barenboim conducts Mahler

In his 55-year association with the Philharmoniker, Daniel Barenboim has so far never conducted the music of Gustav Mahler. This is about to change: the programme includes two late works, beginning with the expressive Adagio from the unfinished Tenth Symphony. It is characterised by an aching melancholy, as in the Lied von der Erde. Poised between a song cycle and a symphony, Mahler called it at the time “probably the most personal thing I have done so far”.
