Mahler Symphony No. 3
March 28 - March 30, 2013
For his third program of the season, Daniele Gatti conducts Mahler's multi-faceted and emotionally wide-ranging Symphony No. 3, a work notable for its length, difficulty, and overwhelming cumulative impact. For this performance, the expanded ranks of the BSO are joined by the eminent Swedish mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter, the women of the Tanglewood Festival Chorus, and the boys of the PALS Children's Chorus. Across its nearly 100-minute length, the broad musical canvas of Mahler's Third Symphony incorporates a full range of musical and emotional expression.
