Continuing my 2011 Mahler symphony cycle with his bleak, dark, and magnificent 6th symphony. Mahler believed the whole world should be contained in a symphony, and in this great work, that whole world faces exquisite beauty and intense struggle which ultimately collapses into shocking and violent defeat. One of the greatest and most emotional recordings with Sir John Barbirolli and the New Philharmonia Orchestra from 1968.
