Mahler 6 with Karina Canellakis
Gustav Mahler himself found his Sixth Symphony difficult to conduct. The work had to mature in the ears of conductors, orchestras and listeners, especially because of its size and tragedy. For eighty minutes, fear and doubt loom large. But the master of contrast also lets cowbells ring in an Alpine valley and a xylophone in a haunting scherzo. The Andante is mild and rural and quotes from Mahler's Kindertotenlieder. And the long last movement contains enormous blows of fate.
