Abbado conducts Mahler and Schönberg
What has been so remarkable about Claudio Abbado’s Mahler performances is that their impact has never been achieved at the expense of the multiple sensitivities, subtleties and extreme sophistication. Together with the world´s leading youth orchestra – the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester (GMJO) – Abbado performs Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No.4 and Arnold Schönberg’s Pelleas und Melisande, op.5. The Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester was founded in Vienna in 1986, on the initiative of its present musical director, Claudio Abbado. The orchestra's high level of artistic quality and its international success have moved important conductors and soloists to work with the ensemble.
