Andris Nelsons conducts Mahler's Symphony No. 6

Boston Symphony Orchestra

Symphony Hall, Boston, MA

Gustav Mahler’s intensely emotional Symphony No. 6, written in 1903–04, is arguably his most heartfelt symphonic statement — his wife Alma called it "the most completely personal of his works." The Sixth features three powerful and ominous hammer blows in its finale, which evidently represented for Mahler "three blows of fate."
