MARYANN MCCORMICK, ALTO

Mahler wrote his hymn to the natural world while he was a young man anxious to make a big noise in the world. It is a fulfillment of his vision of "creating a world with all the technical means available." As he later told Sibelius, "The symphony must be like the world. It must embrace everything." The music ascends from "worldly tumult" of birdcalls, rustic dances and marches to a profound expression of serene power and beauty. 

The Music

Gustav Mahler — Symphony No. 3 (musician’s choice)
