Mahler’s Sixth Symphony was premiered by the Essen Philharmonic in Essen on May 27, 1906. The composer conducted the performance himself. Astonishingly, he only led it two subsequent times: in 1906 in Munich and in 1907 in Vienna.
 
The common nickname “Tragic Symphony” was only officially used once (at the first performance in Vienna) and then never again; it did not make its way into published editions of the score.
 
The order of the two middle movements also poses a riddle. At first, Mahler wanted to place the Scherzo before the Andante, but then decided before the premiere to change the order to Andante-Scherzo. But when the famous conductor Wilhelm Mengelberg asked Mahler’s widow about the correct order, she telegrammed him the answer: “Scherzo – Andante”…
"...Yet another fine "live" recording from Oehms Classics."
