Claudio Abbado conducts Mahler's Symphony No. 3 Lucerne Festival 2007

About

The Third Symphony, performed on 20th August 2007 at the Lucerne Festival, confirms what a great Mahlerian Abbado was.

"There's no need to look at the landscape, all of it is in my symphony." It is with these words in reference to the Third Symphony that Gustav Mahler in 1896 greets the conductor Bruno Walter come to visit him in Steinbach-am-Attersee, at his holiday home in Austria. The Third, the longest of Mahler's symphonies (approximately one hour and a half), is an ode to nature, but a nature from which many torments emerge.
