Mahler Symphony No.3 81′

Sopranos and altos of the Hallé Choir – Matthew Hamilton, Choral Director
Hallé Children’s Choir – Shirley Court, Director

Mahler’s Third Symphony is a particular favourite of Sir Mark and he’s excited to be performing it again with the Hallé. He admires its ‘musical imagination and the wonderful accumulative emotional power of its journey.’ Mahler felt that within this symphony ‘the whole of nature finds a voice’, composing it on the shore of the Attersee with views across the lake to the mountains beyond; from there he watched the changing moods of nature, images that seeped into the symphony’s fabric. The inner movements, framed by two vast symphonic canvases, were inspired by flowers, animals, people and angels, and include settings of Nietzsche, and from the folk collection Des Knaben Wunderhorn, in which Alice Coote, the Hallé Children’s Choir and sopranos and altos of the Hallé Choir take centre stage.
