01Performance On 320110202

Presented by Catherine Bott, live from the Barbican Hall.

Chief Conductor Jiri Belohlávek conducts Mahler's Sixth Symphony with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Lars Vogt joins them in Mozart's Piano Concerto No 16 in D major, K451.

Mahler's vast Sixth Symphony, first performed in 1906, is recognised today for its extraordinary insights into the human condition. The work comes to a climax with the 'hammer blows of fate' which seem to pre-figure tragic events in the composer's life. The concert opens with an exquisite but rarely performed piano concerto by Mozart, performed by master pianist Lars Vogt.
