Boston Philharmonic Orchestra Mahler — Symphony No. 3

Symphony Hall

Symphony Hall, Boston, MA

Guide to the music with Benjamin Zander, 6:45pm.

After nearly 20 years, it is time once again for the BPO to perform Mahler’s exalted paean to nature, the Third Symphony. It is the longest and most all-embracing of his works. In this vast and profound work for chorus, orchestra, and mezzo-soprano, you will hear it all—from exaltation to terror to union with the primal forces that surround us. Renowned mezzo-soprano Susan Platts returns to sing the poignant setting of Nietzsche’s Midnight Song.-Benjamin Zander, conductor
