While composing Symphony No. 3, Gustav Mahler wrote: “Just imagine a work of such magnitude that it actually mirrors the whole world—one is, so to speak, only an instrument, played on by the universe…My symphony will be something the like of which the world has never yet heard! …In it the whole of nature finds a voice.”
Mahler’s Symphony No. 3 — a 99-minute, six-movement, transcendental masterpiece — is a rare treat at historic Chautauqua Auditorium. Internationally renowned mezzo-soprano Janice Chandler-Eteme makes her Colorado Music Festival debut.
