Simon Rattle conducts Mahler’s Third Symphony

“To me, a symphony means constructing a world with all the technical means at one’s disposal.” – no other work illustrates this quote by Mahler more impressively than his Third Symphony. Raw power and lyrical simplicity, scenes of nature and an orchestral final chorus of ethereal beauty all add up to a multifarious yet coherent whole. Here, the Berliner Philharmoniker and Simon Rattle performed the symphony for the first time together.
