Dear followers and Friends of Philosophy-of-Life: to start with our group with meaningful activities for meaningful people into a hopefully excellent new year Protected content , I’m pleased to share with you the possibility to enjoy a fabulous concert offered by Orchestra Filarmonica della Scala directed by Riccardo Chailly with a program dedicated exclusively to Mahler and his Sinfonía núm. 6, considered as the first known nihilistic piece in the world of music!

“ Compuesta entre Protected content Protected content revisada en Protected content es, en muchos aspectos, su sinfonía más convencional y tradicional. Y aunque en ella no hay texto ni línea argumental específica, muchos oyentes la identifican con la representación de la vida y la muerte de un héroe prototípico, una interpretación que podría explicar por qué el nombre "Trágica" se ha quedado grabado.
Pero a diferencia de la tragedia clásica, la sinfonía no termina con una resolución culminante de la verdad y la catarsis emocional.

Es, de hecho, la única sinfonía de Mahler que no termina en una declaración final de transformación positiva y triunfo, un hecho que llevó al director británico Bruno Walter a definirla como "la primera pieza nihilista en la historia de la música".
