On the 2nd of July at the Great Hall of Moscow Conservatory advanced festival lineup of the renown musicAeterna orchestra has performed Mahler's Symphony #6 as Moscow extension of Perm #dyagilevfest.
To say that the symphony is "Tragic", or the most difficult - is to say nothing. Controversial in interpretations, very hard for musicians to perform; capable of flooding the Conductor with particularities and changes, apt to withdraw musical thought from the usual melodic, and from destructive unity of the ideas - that's probably what it is.
The restrained passion and the gentle dictates, fastidiousness in detail and assertiveness in tempo - is the unique conductor style of Teodor Currentzis. Sensitivity in sound and confidence in respect to the author, or rather of the internal addressing to him, so that his subtle emotion, and fervor, and the feeling of tragedy and cruelty are understood. Our vulnerability in modern existence requires correctness and caution, manifested in excess by brilliant Maestro in the its performance of the 6th Symphony, turning with Mahler music to our souls, while preserving right for the last word.
