Claudio Abbado & Lucerne Festival Orchestra – Mahler 9

Gustav Mahler
Symphony No. 9
in D major

Lucerne Festival Orchestra
Claudio Abbado
, conductor

Claudio Abbado and his hand-picked players of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra take their acclaimed Mahler cycle to a new level with this performance of the most complex and compelling of the symphonies, the intense, searching Ninth. Abbado brings all his renowned clarity of vision and the experience of a lifetime to this contradictory music – half valedictory, half life-affirming – and his “orchestra of soloists”, including some of the leading instrumentalists of our time, revels in the transparent textures and virtuosity of Mahler’s last completed symphony.  “A rendition … of astonishing depth and subtlety” (Daily Telegraph).
