Above all, conductor and orchestra showed how the nerves and sinews could be exposed without any compromise of aesthetic quality.
While the strings were able to encompass both glassy brilliance and intense, throbbing passion, the woodwind could be languid or sensuous, the brass potent or exultant.
Yet it was the final section, the tenderly, infinitely protracted pastoral idyll, that, one sensed, offered the inner truth of the work, for Jansons as for the composer.
As in Oslo and Pittsburgh, Jansons was credited with transforming the sound of the Dutch orchestra, in this case muting the brightness cultivated by his predecessor Riccardo Chailly and restoring the warmth and depth with which it had traditionally been associated.
At the start of this year he gave another striking account in London of Ein Heldenleben , this time with the Bavarians. Players in all the orchestras he conducted had difficulty matching his energy levels, but Jansons drove himself in the belief that he had not reached his peak, that there was still more to learn.
It was perhaps that unflagging commitment, combined with his search for truth, that made him the outstanding conductor he was.
He had been ill frequently this year, collapsing in the Vienna Philharmonic podium and cancelling a Bavarian Radio concert at Carnegie Hall. Mariss was a marvellous conductor, a sensitive man and a wonderful friend.
The maestro with the sweetest smile. Personal tributes here. Son of the Latvian conductor Arvid Jansons and his Jewish wife, Araida, Mariss was born in hiding under the Nazi occupation and once shared with me his early forest memories.
While Arvid was assistant conductor of the Leningrad Philharmonic, Mariss memorised his musical library and conducted a trayful of matchsticks. Nobody ever matched his precision placing of orchestra musicians.
His father Arvid died five years later in the north of England of a heart attack after conducting the Halle. Only the presence of a quickwitted doctor and the immediate proximity of a hospital saved his life.
He became music director in Pittsburgh the following year, revivifying the orchestra over half a decade until he wearied of transatlantic flights.
He held a parallel position at the Concertgebouw from to His epic recordings include the Mahler and Shostakovich symphonies. He leaves a daughter, Ilona, from his first marriage, along with his devoted second wife, Irina, who was never far from his side.
I will append some personal memories. We need, all of us, to take time to mourn this life-enhancing human being. How terribly sad.
And thank you to the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks for not letting him down but standing by him until the end, even if that meant a lot of re-scheduling.
