Review of Simon Rattle – Mahler: Sixth Symphony

Simon Rattle has never approached the existential power of Mahler's music as he does now with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra.

Simon Rattle has already recorded Mahler's Sixth with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and twice with the Berlin Philharmonic, yet Rattle has perhaps never come so close to the existential power of Mahler's music as he does with this new recording.

Everything is taken to the extreme here, with the brilliant BR Orchestra playing as if it were a matter of life, and the recording technology capturing this magnificent hour at the Isarphilharmonie perfectly.
