  • Gustav Mahler Symphony No. 6
  • Conductor Robert Hodge

Mahler Symphony no. 6

Nicknamed the ‘Tragic’ symphony (not by Mahler) although composed at a very happy time in the composer’s life, Mahler’s Symphony no. 6 is outwardly conventional in symphonic terms: Allegro, Andante, Scherzo and Finale. There convention ends and Mahler begins, using his extraordinary powers of invention and vast forces of strings, winds, brass, harps (plural)  and percussion, including celeste, bells, cowbells, and ‘Mahler hammer’! A concert not to be missed for Mahler afficionados and symphony lovers alike.
