Programmes

A whole novel in the form of a jagged march at the start and a slow hymn to love as finale. Between them, two lightweight scherzi and two choral movements with words from Nietzsche’s «Also sprach Zarathustra» and the folk song collection «Des Knaben Wunderhorn»: Gustav Mahler’s Third, premiered in 1902, is among the most spectacular and expansive symphonies of them all. Heaven and earth sound within it – and only first-rate singers dare conquer this summit with the Tonkunstler Orchestra: Elisabeth Kulman, the women’s choir of the Wiener Singverein and the Vienna Boys Choir. Yutaka Sado is their sure-footed guide.
