Gustav Mahler Symphonie n° 6 "Tragique"


Today was the concert of Orchestra de Paris and they played Mahler's Symphonie n° 6 "Tragique" at salle pleyel. What is good to live here is of course there are more chance to see so called "arts". We don't have much occasion to listen to gigantic pieces of classic music such as Mahler at the concert in Japan. Personally I love Mahler but I am not one of these snobby classic fans. So, Of course, the seat wasn't the premier but the troisiem, which was my first and turned out to be very interesting experience to sit down behind the orchestra!The sound wasn't very balanced, especially because I was sitting right behind the 8 horns! (If you know this piece, you could imagine how they were loud!) Besides that, it is very interesting to feel their breathes, moves and human touch.
P.S. If you are interested to see more photos from today's concert, please visit my other blog, Bebe Log.

Welcome to the DP family, Lulu !

I lived in Paris for a few years, so I can relate to your experiences. I also admire your courage to just pick-up and move to the other side of the world! Bravo! How is your French coming along?

Love your perspective on the photos.
