Zubin Mehta conducts Mahler’s Third Symphony

“Real horror” seized Gustav Mahler when he realized the enormous dimensions of his Third Symphony. The vastness of the work was consistent with his spiritual conception, however, since nothing less than “the entire world” was to be mirrored in the symphony. At the close is a poignant hymn to love. The conductor is Zubin Mehta, who was introduced to this musical cosmos by Mahler’s assistant Bruno Walter.
