Great Composers

De Waart’s Mahler 6

18 & 19-2-2011 Fri & Sat 8PM
Hong Kong Cultural Centre Concert Hall


PROGRAMME


MAHLER

Symphony No. 6

 


House Programme

 Leaflet

A major musical anniversary this Season is the centenary of the death of Gustav Mahler. The tragic Sixth uses the biggest orchestra he ever employed (including cow-bells, birch-twigs and, most dramatically, a sledge-hammer) yet contains his most intimate and deeply felt thoughts. Its programme tells of nothing other than the hopes and ambitions of the young, recently-married composer, and how they are ultimately thwarted by the inevitability of Fate. Hear this most powerful and awe-inspiring of symphonies under the baton of renowned Mahler interpreter Edo de Waart.
