'My time will come', said Mahler, and of no work is his prediction more true than the Sixth Symphony, which was initially greeted with incomprehension. To modern audiences, the symphony seems drawn deep from its composer's creative well-spring. In its heroic struggle against catastrophe, the sixth is one of the greatest of all symphonies - 'the only Sixth', thought Alban Berg, ''despite the Pastoral' - and one of the darkest. Antonio Pappano and his Santa Cecilia Orchestra bring an overwhelming intensity to this live performance, given to mark the 100th anniversary of Mahler's death.
