Tonight at 7: Mahler 9th from Amsterdam

Mahler's 9th Symphony "expresses an extraordinary love of the earth," said Alban Berg; yet "it comes from eternity," said Herbert von Karajan. Hear an extraordinary performance by one of the world's finest orchestras, the Royal Concertgebouw, led by Daniele Gatti, the music director of the French National Orchestra and Zurich Opera. Reviewing the September concert, one critic wrote that "the sound of this wonderful orchestra really opened up" and that "Gatti’s and the orchestra’s pacing and shaping of this was excellent."
