Kirill Petrenko with Mahler’s Ninth

The Ninth Symphony is Gustav Mahler’s last completed work – a farewell and at the same time a visionary foreshadowing of musical Modernism. In contrast to other works, Mahler did not live to see its premiere; he was denied the usual final balancing of voices. “This poses a particular challenge for all those who perform this musical testament when interpreting the musical text,” says Kirill Petrenko. The chief conductor takes on this challenge with the Philharmoniker.
