Claudio Abbado (1930-2014) was one of the leading conductors of his time; especially his Mahler performances always fascinated the audience. "His concerts were life-changing events for anyone lucky enough to hear them" (The Guardian). The Austrian composer and conductor Gustav Mahler led the traditional symphonic genre into the 20th century. His works are today part of the standard repertoire of every major orchestra.
