The Gewandhaus Orchestra in Leipzig is to broadcast its 'Great Concert' live this Sunday, September 8 at 11am CEST (10am BST) via Arte Live Web. The online performance will feature Mahler's Ninth Symphony conducted by the orchestra's principal conductor Riccardo Chailly.
In 2011, Chailly and the Gewandhaus Orchestra began recording live performances of the complete Mahler symphonies for DVD release on Accentus. Thus far Symphonies Nos 2, 4 and 8 have been released; Symphony No 4 was named Gramophone's DVD of the month in our August 2013 issue and you can read Peter Quantrill's review here.
