From the label:

With the Sixth Symphony audite continues its successful Mahler series with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra under its legendary Music Director Rafael Kubelik in 180g-vinyl format. Mahler himself called his Sixth the “Tragic:” it unconditionally duplicates the imaginary hero’s path into the final and ultimate downfall. Its instrumentation has grown to gigantic proportions, its expression intensified to the utmost.

The Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra tackles this act of power with bravura: enormous expressive power and the highest technical precision are combined in Kubelik’s direction to form an impressive sonic experience.

The work is presented in a live recording made on December 6, 1968 from the Herkulessaal of the Munich Residenz.
