Mahler’s love of nature imbues his Symphony No.3 in the final concert of Vasily Petrenko’s series at the Royal Albert Hall. Written from his purpose-built composing hut that overlooked the Austrian Alpine vistas, this six-movement, colossal work evokes a canvas of life and a reflection of nature’s beauty, with the huge orchestra and choir bringing to life – musically – the blooms of the forest and the silence of the night; culminating with a stunning finale that embraces – above all else – the state of heavenly love.
