Recorded live at the Concert Hall of the Culture and Convention Center Lucerne, 10 August 2006
Lucerne Festival Orchestra
Conductor: Claudio Abbado
The Lucerne Festival each year opens with a concert given by the resident Lucerne Festival Orchestra. This is an élite ensemble founded by Claudio Abbado that is based on the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, to which are added internationally renowned soloists and chamber musicians. Marking the centenary of the symphony's première in 1906, Abbado leads a heart-felt rendition of Mahler's tragic and prophetic Symphony No. 6; the performance was made all the more powerful because of Abbado's long association with Mahler's music.
Recorded: Palais des Beaux-Arts (BOZAR), Brussels, 6 September 2009

Indeed, the rapport between players and conductor was unusually cordial, climaxing in the warmth with which he singled out the various instruments for rapturous applause at the termination of the performance. And what players they were! I have made only one visit to the Lucerne Festival in my youth (early 1960s) and the Festival Orchestra of the period was well-considered, but with nothing like the quality and reputation of the forces that Abbado has now mustered for the event: The Mahler Chamber Orchestra supplemented by members of two distinguished string quartets ( Alban Berg and Hagen ), and a panoply of instrumentalists from some of Europe's fines orchestras, including the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonics. The camera showed off their skills to great visual effect with ravishing photography that I have never seen surpassed in a DVD. The sound quality was consistently superb. The handsome auditorium received due recognition, and the presenced of a live audience added an electrifying atmosphere to a moving and satisfying musical experience. The accompanying booklet is minimalistic, and there are no extras beyond a series of trailers for other Abbado DVDs, but these I found highly intriguing in contrast to most such advertising in this medium. The 6th Symphony is my first Mahler DVD;I cannot wait to get my hands on others in the series.
Abbado and the Lucerne Festival Orchestra do it again, turning in the best performance of Mahler's Sixth since Leonard Bernstein did it decades ago. For those familiar with Mahler's Sixth, yes, this includes two devastating hammerblows with a large wooden mallet and a resonating wooden box--finally hammerblows approaching the huge mallet used by Leonard Bernstein. I could rave on about how clearly you can see and hear each instrument as it plays its part in this giant symphony, but you can see it for yourself in this DVD. The editors and cameramen (and camerawomen) have done their work well in directing us to each performer as his instrument carries the theme.
You don't need my word for it. Watch it, and you'll see the delight in the faces of the timpanist, Raymond Curfs or flautist, Jacques Zoon. Their joy at participating in such a magnificent work is not something they can hide.
