Three hard blows in life – were they inevitable? Or sorrowful predictions?  Hear about Mahler's contradictory life in his profound symphony.

In 1904, Mahler completed his sixth symphony, nicknamed "Tragic". This is the second of the three instrumental symphonies he wrote during his second creative period, and is also one of the most difficult compositions for orchestras to perform. While writing this symphony, Mahler also wrote the cycle song "Kindertotenlieder". What kind of pain was Mahler going through that he had to write so many sorrowful, even desperate works?

Actually, Mahler's life at that time was perfect: he had a beautiful wife, two lovely daughters, and a very stable job as the director of the Vienna Court Opera. It was one of the happiest times in his life. So why did Mahler write "Tragic" during this period? What did the loud sound of the hammer that strikes three times in the final movement mean to Mahler?

All these mysteries are just like Mahler's contradictory and pessimistic life - we can only seek answers in his music. Just as Mahler once said, "My sixth symphony will confuse people. But if they truly understand my first five symphonies, then they will know the answer to this composition."

Will you be the lucky one who finds the answer tonight?
