Mahler Symphony No. 3

A six-movement epic in which ‘nature acquires a voice and tells profound secrets’ (Mahler), the glorious Third Symphony takes us on a profound emotional journey. Inspired by the beauty of the natural world, the symphony was an outcome of time spent on the shore of an Austrian mountain lake. It culminates with the composer’s vision of earth and heaven in a captivating slow movement that enshrines the universal ideals of human love and forgiveness.
