On demand: Mahler - Symphony no. 3

Avrotros Radio 4Recorded at TivoliVredenburg: Grote Zaal, Utrecht, Netherlands

The Radio Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Markus Stenz, the women of the Netherlands Radio Choir, The National Children's Choir and alto Tamara Mumford perform Mahler's 'Symphony No. 3' on December 23th 2017 in TivoliVredenburg, Utrecht.

Mahler’s ‘Symphony No. 3’ is an ode to nature’s beauty. For Mahler, it goes further than babbling brooks and fluttering butterflies - nature’s filled with terrifying primal forces, that get calmed by an alto, women choir and boy’s choir. ‘My Third Symphony is something the world has never heard before! All of nature gets a voice and tells deep secrets - men might find themselves in a dream.’
