This Ondine issue featuring Christoph Eschenbach and the Philadelphia in the SACD format is no exception to either of these attributes. Eschenbach's only previous Mahler symphony recording is one made of the Symphony No. 1, "Titan," with the Houston Symphony, and his rendering of the Symphony No. 6 in A minor, "Tragic," with the Philadelphia Orchestra, is the first the orchestra has ever made of this work.
Symphony No. 6 in A minor by Gustav Mahler is a symphony in four movements, composed in 1903 and 1904 (revised 1906; scoring repeatedly revised). Mahler conducted the work's first performance at the Saalbau concert hall in Essen on May 27, 1906. It is sometimes referred to by the nickname Tragische ("Tragic"). or on Zemlinsky's piano duet transcription (1906). 57 By contrast, in his Gustav Mahler memoir, Bruno Walter claimed that "Mahler called his Tragic Symphony". Additionally, the programme for the first Vienna performance (January 4, 1907) refers to the work as "Sechste Sinfonie (Tragische)".
