Gustav Mahler

Gustav Mahler

‘The Sounds of Nature’

Mahler Symphony No. 3

with "The Carroll Singers" and Trinity Boys' Choir
    mezzo soprano - Miriam Power

In Mahler’s romantic vision ‘a symphony is like the world, it must contain everything’. His third symphony, written at his retreat in the Austrian Alps in 1893-4, was first titled ‘A Summer Morning’s Dream’ and is a wonderful orchestral pageant of nature and human experience. It includes a sublime movement for soloist and chorus, and ends in an exultant finale ‘What Love Tells Me’.
