Mahler: Symphony no. 6 (Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra)
Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra
Live performance: Symphony Hall, Boston (April 2017)
Pulitzer Prize winning critic Lloyd Schwartz praised this performance: “There’s no way this could possibly be a “youth orchestra” — it certainly doesn’t sound like one — not only technically but the way these staggeringly skillful players convey both the extraordinary power and the most intimate nuances of this masterpiece. This is one of the most thrilling Mahler performances I’ve ever heard.”
