Mahler Symphony No. 6
Thursday, March 31, 2022 at 7:30pm PT Music Director Thomas Dausgaard conducts Mahler’s tragic Sixth Symphony. Driven, bitter and sweet by turns, the music is haunted by echoes of a military march stalking through the symphony. Brief moments of nostalgia suggest hope might win — but in the end, Mahler revealed, the mighty hammer-blows of fate fell the hero “like the stroke of an ax.” Program: R.
