Event has already taken place

A musical marathon full of beauty, joy, emotion and drama conducted by Kent Nagano.

The Third Symphony is Mahler’s longest and brightest and according to the composer’s early notes, it has been influenced by nature, flowers, animals, man, angels and love.

These influences enabled wonderful music to emerge that summer in 1896, when Mahler fell in love with the singer Anna von Mildenburg. For large orchestra, female choir and boys’ choir, as well as alto, bursting into “a sweet song that made heaven resound with joy.”
