Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecila Plays Mahler’s Haunting Sixth Symphony

Carnegie Hall

www.carnegiehall.org

Seventh Avenue at 57th Street, New York, NY 10019

Tickets are available here as Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Celina continues their Carnegie Hall engagement. Tragedy and rapture are the essence of Mahler’s Sixth Symphony. The storm-tossed finale’s three titanic hammer blows presaged personal tragedies in Mahler’s life, including his own mortal illness. Superstitious, he removed the third blow. But the symphony overflows with life-affirming joys as well, from peaceful memories of mountain pastures—listen for the cowbells—to the ecstatic portrait of his wife, Alma, that fills the first movement. Soprano Barbara Hannigan joins music director Sir Antonio Pappano for this performance, which also includes Salvatore Sciarrino La Nuova Euridice secondo Rilke in a New York premiere. – Carnegie Hall
