Gustav Mahler’s Third Symphony is a musical exploration of the natural and human world that includes landscapes, animal and human voices, and the earthly and the transcendental. It ends with a hymn to love – both powerful and tender, and majestic and deeply human at the same time: one of the most moving final movements ever. Our recording documents a performance from 1990 with Bernard Haitink – one of the pioneers of the Mahler Renaissance of the last century.
