Mahler Symphony No. 6

Klaus Tennstedt conductor
London Philharmonic Orchestra
David Nolan leader

Mahler once remarked to Sibelius ‘a symphony must be like the world, it must embrace everything.’ His Sixth Symphony is a salient and personal statement, containing musical depictions of his wife and children. It reaches a tragic conclusion in the Finale representing ‘the hero, on whom fall three blows of fate, the last of which fells him as a tree is felled.’ Klaus Tennstedt’s interpretations of Mahler during his celebrated partnership with the London Philharmonic Orchestra bear testimony to the way Mahler composed his life.
