Wonderful Mahler and Beethoven at the Ljubljana Festival

Wonderful Mahler and Beethoven at the Ljubljana Festival

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 superb, stirring rendition of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. The lengthy standing ovations at the end of both performances were extremely well deserved – two very memorable evenings.
