Careful what you wish for. Mahler’s Sixth Symphony portrays an artist destroyed by three mighty “hammer blows of fate” – and soon afterwards, three devastating blows reduced Mahler’s own life to ruins. Well, that’s the legend, anyway; what’s beyond dispute is that Mahler Sixth is one of the most powerful, and personal, symphonies ever written. Andris Nelsons will bring every bar urgently to life.
