Boston Philharmonic Coupons and Deals
The Mahler Sixth has occupied a very prominent place in the musical life of Ben Zander and in the history of the Boston Philharmonic. Nicknamed by the composer “The Tragic”, it faces the grimmest realities of life and death unflinchingly with infinite and surprising variety. In the first movement there is the ecstasy of the music associated with his beloved wife Alma, the evocation of lonely and serene Alpine landscapes, the brutal tramping of inexorable marches. The second movement brings grim, parodistic elements, and the third – music of heartbreaking beauty – has a bittersweet, nostalgic evocativeness. The relentless finale, from its opening eerie and unsettling harmonies, traces the struggles and apparent victories of the “Hero”
