Riccardo Chailly & Gewandhausorchester Leipzig: Mahler 6

Gustav Mahler
Symphony No. 6 in A minor

Riccardo Chailly
Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra

“The audience knows that the performance of a Mahler symphony is not only a musical experience, but is also emotionally effective” (R. Chailly). This counts especially for Mahler’s enigmatic sixth symphony, an emotionally stirring challenge for both performers and listeners, whilst also being one of the most impressive works in musical history. Chailly’s interpretation with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra is “intensely great” (Die Presse).

“Chailly uncompromisingly considers this sixth symphony through the lens of modernity; looking forward, not retrospectively staying in ‘late romantic’. In this celebrated orchestra, all sections splendidly come together and fulfil an ‘open’ sound, conserving whilst respecting its original beauty.” (Salzburger Nachrichten)
