MAHLER Symphony No. 3 

Mahler’s Third Symphony is the heart of his symphonic output. In six movements, it looks at the totality of the natural world, beginning with plants and animals, rising to humans and culminating in the divine. Its last movement, which Mahler named, “What love tells me,” is a magnificent arc of melody, as beautiful as anything he wrote.
