More free Abbado tribute broadcasts

More free Abbado tributes

On Mahler Symphony no 9 Lucerne, 2010 (one of the best).  Communion in art: that was Claudio Abbado’s almost sacred power. It is with a sincere humility and a profound respect that we wish to pay a tribute to this great musician and humanist; this is why, until January 31st, we broadcast for the first time on, and for free, this outstanding performance of Mahler’s Ninth Symphony recorded at the Lucerne Festival in 2010... Watch the concert for free until Jan. 31st
