Mahler#9 & Staatskapelle@ Carnegie Hall

In Uncategorized on May 20, 2009 at 2:04 pm

Every time I think that THIS is the best concert in the world a new one comes along . Symphony # 9 is a farewell to life, Mahler died shortly after. Daniel Barenboim pulled the best preformance of this cycle, I’m sure, out of SB this afternoon. He held the last note for eternity and then silence for another eternity and when he let his hands down the place went wild. The orchestra is in the zone and raised the bar for Mahler interpretation. It was beautiful and dramatic and …..

I’m sure there can be some critisizim of this concert, but not from me. The balance and intensity and individual playing was superlative.
