front-small-boxset Many thanks to Jean-Luc for another Mahler/Solti masterpiece
The Third Symphony is Mahler’s hymn to the natural world and his longest work. It was largely composed in the summer of 1895 after an exhausting and troubling period that pitched him into feverish creative activity. Bruno Walter visited him at that time and as Mahler met him off the ferry Walter looked up at the spectacular alpine vistas around him only to be told: “No use looking up there, that’s all been composed by me.” Mahler was inspired by the grandeur around him at the very deepest level of feeling and also by visions of Pan and Dionysus. In fact by a sense of every natural creative force in the universe infusing him into “one great hymn to the glory of every aspect of creation”, or, as Deryck Cooke put it: “a concept of existence in its totality.”
