Daniel Harding conducts the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra in Mahler's 6th Symphony at the Baltic Sea Festival.
The Sixth has earned itself the epithet 'Tragic' with good reason: its doom-laden finale and gargantuan Ländler were perhaps premonitions of the Tragic turn that Mahler's life would soon take. But actually, the work was begun in an atmosphere of calm, high in the Austrian mountains in the summer of 1903 during what Alma Mahler called Mahler's 'composing holidays.'
Ian Skelly presents this performance recorded at the Berwaldhallen in Stockholm.
