Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 6, written in the first decade of the 20th century, is a big, dramatic work written for a large orchestra. Nicknamed “Tragic,” (although hat was not what Mahler called it), it’s filled with sweeping contrasts, from heart-stopping melodies to wrenching despair.
To savor those contrasts, it will be the only piece on the Cleveland Orchestra’s program this week at Severance Hall. Music director Franz Welser-Möst conducts.
Tickets range from $21-$151.
