Somtow conducts Mahler Six - The Whole Concert
21 Feb 2012
This entire performance has been uploaded, glitches and all, so that those who missed the Siam Philharmonic's historic performance of Mahler Six on Feb 16 will be able to have the entire experience in as close a manner as possible to those who were present. Everyone present felt they were at a special, unique event. Here was an iconic work of the twentieth century, being discovered and interpreted by young people many of whom had never played (or in some cases even heard) Mahler before ... for an audience almost all of whom had never heard this piece, and almost certainly not live.
There will be an audio release of this concert in which some of the glitches will be fixed from rehearsal takes.
The Siam Philharmonic would like to thank the members of Gustav's Angels, the social networking initiative that allowed this concert to be funded, for making it all possible.
