Eliahu Inbal • Mahler 6
Esplanade Concert Hall
Hammer of Fate
Written in an apparently happy period of his life, Mahler’s “Tragic Symphony” is often described in the exact opposite of terms: nihilistic, dark, foreboding. The tender slow movement aside, it “ends in hopelessness and the dark night of the soul” with its infamous hammer blows.
Of all his works this was the most personal… We were both in tears… so deeply did we feel this music and the sinister premonitions it disclosed. – Alma Mahler.
