Richard Atkinson

Richard Atkinson chooses and analyzes a “most beautiful passage” from each of Mahler’s 9 symphonies. This is a fair use educational commentary that uses small excerpts from live recordings of Claudio Abbado and the Lucerne Festival Orchestra (Symphonies #1-7 and #9), Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic (Symphony #8), and Pierre Boulez at Bayreuth (Götterdämmerung excerpt). For best results, view this video full-screen and listen with good-quality headphones or speakers. All recordings used have been previously published on YouTube and time-indexed links to the chosen passages are provided below:
