As good as it gets for me...


Love Mahler. I actually prefer his 6th and then 5th more that his 9th. Perhaps I'll refresh myself with the 9th.


The 6th is my favorite also even though I basically agree with this assessment of it:
"Whereas all the other symphonies either end in triumph (1, 2, 5, 7 and 8), tranquillity (3, 4) or resigned acceptance (Das Lied, 9 and 10) the sixth is almost unremittingly bleak. "Life's a bitch and then you die" just about sums up this work."


I don't know. There's just something about that 4th Movement in Mahler 9 that just gets me every time I hear it.

Definitely need to revisit the others though.
