Alban Berg wrote a letter to Anton Webern, in 1908, in which he stated that Mahler’s Sixth Symphony “was the only Sixth, despite the Pastoral.”
Composed between 1903 and 1904, shortly after his marriage to Alma Schindler and during the birth of his second daughter, the Symphony was premièred on 27 May, 1906, in Essen, with the composer himself conducting the orchestra.
As Professor Paulo Pereira de Assis wrote, “Mahler’s Sixth Symphony expresses Man’s struggle against matter, the attempt to assert the individual capacity of the human will against the violent inevitability of fate.”
Conductor Pedro Neves
