Conductor Sir Andrew Davis and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra are up to Mahler's 6th Symphony in their Cycle of playing Mahler's symphonies. Subtitled The Tragic, this mammoth 80-minute work is indeed fateful — although with a beautiful pastoral slow movement, complete with cowbells!
There will be three performances all at Hamer Hall- Thursday the 30th of June, Friday the 1st and Saturday the 2nd of July.
Tickets start at $55. For more details and to book tickets see http://www.mso.com.au/whats-on/2016-season/sir-andrew-davis-conducts-mahler-6/
