Mahler: Symphony No. 6

San Francisco Symphony
Michael Tilson Thomas (conductor)

The SFS and MTT present their first recording of the complete Mahler Symphony cycle. Each of Mahler's nine symphonies is a drama, and Michael Tilson Thomas is among the foremost interpreters of these episodes. Last fall, the SFS and MTT began their five-season project of recording all the Mahler Symphonies and the Adagio from the unfinished Tenth, live.

The first installment is Symphony No. 6. Sometimes called the "Tragic" Symphony, the Sixth shows Mahler at his most devastating, and many think of this music, first heard in 1906, as a prophecy of the horrors of the century to come. This recording was made at the SFS concerts of September 12-15, 2001, immediately following the events of September 11 and captures a passionate response to that day.
