Claudio Abbado conducts Mahler: Symphony No. 6, "Tragic" Lucerne Festival Orchestra

About

With the Sixth Symphony performed on August 10th 2006, Claudio Abbado continues his Mahlerian quest which has marked year after year since 2003 the historical concerts performed at the Lucerne Festival.

Mahlerian through and through, Abbado has repeatedly worked on the symphonies of the Viennese composer whom he discovered very young when studying in the Austrian capital. This very Italian conductor, born in Milan in 1933, who was for fifteen years the director of the Scala, trained in Vienna with Hans Swarowsky and is extremely familiar with the culture of Central Europe, from the literature to the fine arts.
