»It is the greatest thing I’ve done so far. So singular in terms of content and form that it is impossible to write about. Imagine the whole universe had begun to chime and sound.« Gustav Mahler wasn’t shy of using a superlative or two when describing his Eighth Symphony, the »Symphony of a Thousand«, in 1906. And indeed, the monumental work about faith, forgiveness and redemption can hardly be beaten for philosophical power. Mahler used the medieval hymn »Veni creator spiritus« (Come, Creator Spirit) and the end of Goethe’s »Faust II« in the symphony. And the sheer force of the sound is without equal in the whole repertoire: eight solo singers, four choirs and an enormous orchestra. Fittingly, it is the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester, one of the world’s best youth orchestras, taking on this mammoth challenge, conducted by Daniel Harding and accompanied by several choirs.
