Mahler Symphony No. 3


Michael Bell – Conductor

Kate Woolveridge - Mezzo-Soprano

A symphony must be like a world. It must contain everything.

So said Gustav Mahler to fellow composer Sibelius, and Mahler’s remark was nowhere better exemplifiedthan in his amazing 90-minute Symphony No. 3. Scored for huge orchestra, two choruses and soloist this an epic and magical work, and is one of the most engrossing and uplifting works ever written – Mahler’s hymn to Nature.

If you’ve never heard Mahler’s Symphony No. 3 live, this a rare chance to hear a work that will move you,
excite you, entrance you and can take your breath away with its sheer majesty.
