The newest addition to the MSO Live Series, this 2-CD set features internationally acclaimed conductor Mark Wigglesworth with Australia's oldest orchestra, the Melbourne Symphony. The piece is emotionally charged Mahler at its best: a powerful, passionate portrayal of heroism in the face of inexorable fate.

With its ominous hammer-blows in the final movement, and eerie sense of foreboding, Mahler's Sixth Symphony stands at the pinnacle of the symphonic literature. It was composed at a time when Mahler's life was about to undergo dramatic changes, and it's hard not to hear within it the premonitions of a genius battling against inexorable fate.

One of the great live orchestral experiences, the symphony is captured here in an electrifying performance. With its formidable architecture spanning two CDs, and the palpable excitement of the players rising to the challenge, this Mahler Sixth is a thrilling addition to the acclaimed MSO Live Series.

Drama-charged but with an ever-present sense of regret and even nostalgia, it's a symphony that truly achieves Mahler's desire for his music to 'embrace the world'.
