Mahler Sixth Symphony

Synopsis

Music Director Thomas Dausgaard conducts Mahler’s tragic Sixth Symphony. Driven, bitter and sweet by turns, the music is haunted by echoes of a military march stalking through the symphony. Brief moments of nostalgia suggest hope might win — but in the end, Mahler revealed, three hammer-blows of fate fell the hero “like the stroke of an ax.”
