MAHLER: Symphony No. 9

TCHAIKOVSKY: Capriccio italien, Op. 45

There's an old saying: "Musicians never die, they just decompose." But for conductors who keep going, don't let that adage give you the wrong impression. Bernard Haitink, in his 84th year, is still going strong and brings together an amazing Mahler 9.

Ruth B. of Fairbanks, AK won this week's encore contest by correctly picking out the first movement of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. Produced in partnership with Radio Netherlands Worldwide Produced in partnership with Radio Netherlands Worldwide
