🌟 A Journey Through Human Emotions
GUSTAV MAHLER himself once called Symphony No. 6 in A minor the “Tragic”. This orchestral masterpiece, opening the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra’s 105th season, delves deep into the human psyche, exploring both the darkest corners and the radiant heights of our emotions.
Mahler's symphony is renowned for its ominous, hammering blows of fate that resound in the finale, an auditory journey through life's struggles. But within its notes, it also encapsulates the full spectrum of human experience—joy and sorrow, good and evil, happiness and melancholy, as major keys collide with minor.
