Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra

G. Mahler: Symphony No. 6 conducted by Lahav Shani

Description Program Artists

With their Beethoven program, Lahav Shani and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra electrified the Festspielhaus audience. We look forward to building on this success with a monumental symphony: Mahler’s Sixth may be known as the “Tragic,” but it is much more than that alone. Here its creator’s vision of portraying a whole world within a symphony becomes a reality. And this “world” is amazingly true-to-life: one theme depicts Mahler’s wife Alma, while later the orchestra plays cowbells, a rute, a tambourine and, not to be forgotten, a hammer – for the famous hammer blows in the finale.
