Program

The Third Symphony, composed at the end of the 19th century, is a great sound fresco that, with the process of human redemption as a substrate, draws from images of classical mythology and nature to build a solemn song to hope. Mahler employs references to Des Knaben Wunderhorn (The Youth’s Magic Horn) and Friedrich

Nietzsche's Thus Spoke Zarathustra to compose a symphony that is the longest in his catalogue and, in fact, of almost the entire orchestral repertoire. It is thanks to works like this that the symphony orchestra is the perfect instrument for representing secular myths. Mahler ignited the consecration of faith in modern man as a new Prometheus.
