Mahler 9th Symphony

Usher Hall Concertgebouw Nicholas Gatti

The conducter paused for 30″ at the end with tears streaming down his face, collecting himself before turning. We shared the intensity of experience with him.

If I have the chance to hear more late Mahler I will certainly take it. Hours later I’m still inside his world of loss, farewell and return.
