Claudio Abbado/Lucerne Festival Orchestra: Mahler - Symphony No. 6 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Number six is a "Tragic Symphony" but Mahler wrote it during one of the happiest periods in his life. He had married the young (20 years his junior) and beautiful Alma Maria Schindler in 1902. Their first daughter was born later that same year, a second daughter followed in 1904. Mahler, in his mid forties, was in good health.
Perhaps, at times, musical work of tragic character is not directly related to the mood of the writer. Here a tragic symphony is no more identifiable with the life of the composer than the first person actor of a novel or narrator of a poem is related with its author.

The interpretation shown in this DVD is great. Claudio Abbado feels it entirely, despite his illness he has been less tragic and more poetic, pleasing, with obvious nobility of conception.

Bravo....
