      Gustav Mahler

      Symphony No. 6 in A Minor
      Philharmoniker Hamburg
      Simone Young, conductor

      Mahler’s Sixth Symphony was premiered by the Essen Philharmonic in Essen on May 27, 1906. The composer conducted the performance himself. Astonishingly, he only led it two subsequent times: in 1906 in Munich and in 1907 in Vienna.

      The common nickname “Tragic Symphony” was only officially used once (at the first performance in Vienna) and then never again; it did not make its way into published editions of the score.

      The order of the two middle movements also poses a riddle. At first, Mahler wanted to place the Scherzo before the Andante, but then decided before the premiere to change the order to Andante-Scherzo. But when the famous conductor Wilhelm Mengelberg asked Mahler’s widow about the correct order, she telegrammed him the answer: “Scherzo – Andante”…
