Lucerne Festival Orchestra - Claudio Abbado: Mahler Symphony No. 6

Available on Prime Video
Claudio Abbado had realized a dream with his Lucerne Festival Orchestra. The sixth symphony - first performed in 1906 and sometimes referred to as "Tragic" - ends on a much sadder, almost nihilistic, note than most of the other Mahler symphonies. This imposing music is captured live in a performance marked by awesome silences and towering climaxes conjured by the Lucerne Festival Orchestra.
