Best classical performance: BSO, Mahler Symphony No. 6

Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 6 offers a riveting reflection on life, love and the inevitability of loss. Although containing some of the composer’s most radiant music, the overall mood of the piece is dark, which can make it quite a challenge for performers and listeners alike. For the first time in 24 years, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra revisited Mahler’s Sixth and, with Marin Alsop at her most inspired on the podium, delivered a galvanizing performance in November. It left a lasting mark.
