A dream mountain walk along flowering meadows, grand vistas and fathomless abysses.

In the happiest time of his life, Mahler composed his dark Sixth, an unprecedented symphonic tour de force. The listener is taken on a dream mountain walk along flowering meadows (cowbells in the orchestra!), grand vistas and fathomless abysses. That journey culminates in a hair-raising finale – according to Vestdijk 'the most poignant, most impressive final part ever written.'
