About this event
Claudio Abbado and his hand-picked players of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra take their acclaimed Mahler cycle to a new level with this performance of the most complex and compelling of the symphonies, the intense, searching Ninth. Abbado brings all his renowned clarity of vision and the experience of a lifetime to this contradictory music – half valedictory, half life-affirming – and his “orchestra of soloists”, including some of the leading instrumentalists of our time, revels in the transparent textures and virtuosity of Mahler’s last completed symphony.
“A rendition … of astonishing depth and subtlety” (Daily Telegraph).
“No one will want to deprive themselves of such a radical experience.” – Diapason d’Or (June 2011)
“ … the mixture of close-ups and wide shots in the final rituals is superb as ever from this team. Finest concert DVD ever? I think so.” – BBC Music Magazine
“ (…) this Ninth, which can only be described as unmissable.” – Gramophone Magazine
