Mahler: Symphony No. 9 in D major
Live-recording from Munich, Germany, December, 2011
Two years before his death, Gustav Mahler composed his Ninth Symphony, the last one he was able to complete. In view of his serious heart condition, the composer concerned himself in this work with the resulting existential change in his life.
This music is performed by the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, conducted by Bernard Haitink (Orchestra of the Bavarian Broadcasting system)
Bernard Haitink is a regular guest on the podium of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks. In December of 2011, he led the orchestra in this work, replacing conductor Mariss Jansons, who was ill.
