The London Symphony Orchestra is known worldwide for a grand, lush sound that has been popularized in the big screen (including the first six Star Wars films), and repeatedly reached No. 1 on the iTunes classical download charts. Mahler’s extravagant masterpiece – which includes waltzes, marches, fanfares, folk tunes and more – has been described as “the last pinnacle of Vienna’s orchestral history,” “an epic novel without words,” and “the first masterpiece of Hollywood music before there were movies.” Rattle is known for leading his former ensemble, the Berliner Philharmoniker, in Mahler’s Ninth, and the London Symphony Orchestra is long associated with its performances of this work.
