MAHLER Symphony No 3

Robert Trevino conductor
Anna Larsson alto
London Symphony Chorus
Simon Halsey
chorus director
London Symphony Orchestra

‘This is a work of such magnitude that it actually mirrors the whole world… in my symphony the whole of nature finds a voice’. This was the biggest thing Mahler ever wrote, six movements and 100 minutes of music that lay out a gargantuan ode to the natural world, complete with the arrival of summer, a choir of angels and a vision of man borrowed from Nietzsche’s Also sprach Zarathustra. It’s big, it’s bold, and it needs no accompaniment. 

Change of conductor
Daniel Harding has sustained a wrist injury and has been forced to withdraw from conducting this concert. The LSO is very grateful to Robert Trevino for stepping in to conduct this concert at short notice. The programme remains the same.
