Wonderful Mahler and Beethoven at the Ljubljana Festival

Chailly1

In Slovenia for the Ljubljana Festival. Two wonderful concerts by the excellent Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, led by Riccardo Chailly. Last night a moving performance of Mahler’s Ninth Symphony and tonight a stirring rendition of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. The lengthy standing ovation at the end of both performances were extremely well deserved – two very memorable evenings.
