Mahler with Eschenbach
Eschenbach´s insight into Mahler’s music results in transparency, flow and musical splendour. Qualities that also elevates the Sixth Symphony to new heights, this fateful music with its heart-rending eruptions gives us a glimpse of death, but at the same time celebrates life. This is how Mahler reflects the existential conditions through music.
