Mahler - Symphony No.3
Sir Mark Elder
Alice Coote, mezzo-soprano (Hallé Associate Artist)
Ladies of the Hallé Choir
Hallé Children’s Choir
Always a great occasion, Sir Mark’s performances of Mahler’s symphonies invariably sell-out. In his all-embracing Third Symphony, Mahler said, ‘the whole of nature finds a voice’. It was composed in his hut on the shore of the Attersee with views across the lake to the mountains beyond; from there he watched the changing moods of nature, images that seeped into the symphony’s fabric. The inner movements, framed by two vast symphonic canvases, were inspired by flowers, animals, people and angels, and include settings of Nietzsche, and from the folk collection Des Knaben Wunderhorn, in which Alice Coote, the Hallé Children’s Choir and Ladies of the Hallé Choir take centre stage.
