Mahler - Symphony No. 3 in D minor

Thursday, May 18, 2017

8:00 pm Verizon Hall

We end the season with Mahler’s colossal Third Symphony,among the grandest works of all. The Symphony is massive—calling for mezzo-soprano, women’s choir, and children’s chorus—and with six movements, is the longest piece in the standard repertoire. “It’s a work that, even more than
any other Mahler symphony, contains—as Mahler said—the whole world,” says Yannick. “It has the mineral life, the vegetation life, the animal one, the human one—and the afterlife as well. … It’s a fascinating work of art.” This is a rare chance to hear this commanding music in the inimitable hands of Yannick and The Philadelphia Orchestra. A monumental end to our season that you won’t want to miss!
