Music director Stéphane Denève shines his light on Mahler's Sixth symphony.
The order of the two middle movements of Mahler's Sixth Symphony is reason for discussion. Initially, Mahler placed the Scherzo before the Andante, but just before the premiere he switched the two movements.
Today most performers follow the – musically most logical – order of the original manuscript. As will Stéphane Denève in his performance with Brussels Philharmonic.
