Masterpiece week Mahler

Masterpiece week Mahler

  • ‘In my symphony, nature gets her own voice and tells secrets so deep that they can only be glimpsed in dreams,’ Mahler wrote to a female friend in July, 1896
  • Mahler once described the symphony as a creation story in six steps, from earth to heaven to God
  • The Third is one of Mahler's longest symphonies and it requires an extended orchestra, supplemented by an alto-solo, a female-voice choir, a boys’ choir and an organ
  • The profound text sung in the fourth movement is taken from Friedrich Nietzsche’s Also sprach Zarathustra
