Why See San Francisco Symphony - Mahler?

Michael Tilson Thomas Conducts Mahler's Epic Third

Considered one of the greatest symphonies of all time, Mahler's physically demanding Third Symphony is a piece so epic in scope and technical prowess that it requires 200 musicians to build his breathtaking paean to life, death and everything in between. The San Francisco Symphony is joined by renowned mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke, the Pacific Boychoir and the Women of the San Francisco Symphony Chorus, helmed by pre-eminent Mahler expert conductor Michael Tilson Thomas.

Inspired by a collection of German folk poems, Mahler explores his own world view in the 90 minute-long work. He offers listeners a world touched by pain, realised in bittersweet, hauntingly beautiful melodic passages that find joy and hope in life-after-death in the triumphant latter half of the work.
