Mahler          Symphony no. 3

Brighton Festival Chorus
Tiffin Boys' Choir

Ester Pavlů  mezzo-soprano
Pietari Inkinen

It was while working on the Third Symphony that Mahler met Sibelius and made his celebrated pronouncement that “a symphony should contain the world”. True to his opinion, this piece moves through the whole cosmos, beginning with the trumpet calls that usher in the huge first movement, subtitled ‘spring marches in’. Mahler takes the listener on a journey which embraces all of creation, including animal and bird life in the second and third movements, and man, beset by doubts and fears, in the mysterious fourth. By the time the music rises to paradise with the ethereal sound of women’s and boys’ voices in the final ecstatic adagio, an immense musical and emotional journey is complete.

Please note there will be no interval in this performance.
