Part 2

Penny Gore presents Mahler's Third Symphony, performed by the Vienna Philharmonic with Bernard Haitink and contralto Jard van Nes at the Concertgebouw in 1995.

Presented by Penny Gore. Mahler's Third Symphony is shot through with the influence of "Des Knaben Wunderhorn" and its references to Nature and childhood. In 1995 the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam staged a Festival: "Gustav Mahler: the world listens" at which all the symphonies were programmed. Today it is the turn of the Third Symphony written in 1896 and performed by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Bernard Haitink with contralto soloist Jard van Nes.
