MTT conducts Mahler’s Ninth Symphony
By 1909, when the anguished Mahler penned his Ninth Symphony, he had tragically lost his four-year-old daughter and learned of the heart ailment that would contribute to his own death two years later. The last symphony he completed, the Ninth, is a defiant affirmation of life as well as a poignant acceptance of mortality, which secured Mahler’s immortality. It was with this music that Maestro Tilson Thomas began his storied SFS career in 1974.
