I’ll share my immense passion for the music of Mahler for my whole life I guess. Here a really deep, most painstakingly detailed but also approachable attempt to decipher the inner dynamics of a complex work of this great work of art, the 3rd symphone. Mahler’s music deserves it. Abraços, Wim Dijkgraaf
WHAT THE UNIVERSE TELLS ME:UNRAVELING THE MYSTERIES OF MAHLER’S THIRD SYMPHONY is a documentary that explores how philosophy, mythology and music combine in Mahler’s Third Symphony to create an all-encompassing panoramic experience. From the volcanoes of the South Pacific to the Alpine peaks and meadows where Mahler composed, in WHAT THE UNIVERSE TELLS ME dramatic images from the natural world give shape to the Symphony’s evolutionary saga. Performances combine with illustrative artwork, computer animation, historical film clips and the insights of world-renowned historians, philosophers and biographers. Thinkers such as Howard Gardner, Stan Brakhage and Catherine Keller join Mahler experts Henry Louis de La Grange, Donald Mitchell, Peter Franklin and Morten Solvik to introduce this masterpiece to new audiences and to celebrate the 100th anniversary of its premiere.
And here an outstanding performance of this same 3rd symphony by the
Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra:
-Date:Feb 3 2010
-Conductor: Mariss Jansons
-Netherlands Radio choir
-Boys of The Breda Sacrament Choir
I hope you’ll have an unforgetable time watching and listening to this music. Art of the highest quality that triggers the most profound, deepest human emotions. Music to die for.
Very warm regards,
