Mahler 6 'Tragische'
When the famous Argentinian pianist Nelson Goerner was asked what exactly he admired in Mozart's Twenty-third Piano Concerto, he listed the following elements: "the surprising simplicity, the musical depth and the mysterious contemplation". To give excellent performances of all the Mahler symphonies in Brussels in less than two years, that is the aim of the Mahler cycle of the three federal cultural institutions. In this concert, the Belgian National Orchestra takes on the Sixth Symphony. The fourth and last movement, in which a giant hammer is used to strike a fatal blow, is particularly famous. Apart from the Eighth, the Sixth is Mahler's symphony with the largest number of instruments: every performance of this work creates deeply moving, unforgettable moments.
