Debut with Mahler

A long-awaited Tonhalle debut, delayed by Corona, can finally take place: American Michael Tilson Thomas conducts Mahler's Symphony No. 6, the "Tragic". In his highly praised Mahler cycle with the San Francisco Symphony, this symphony was once the first he recorded – the day after 9/11. An almost uncanny coincidence that may have had a lasting impact on Tilson Thomas' relationship with the work. Whereby he does not tend to give in to the dark emotions of this music; with rhythmic and tonal presence, he ensures that a way out seems possible even in the darkest passages.
