Valery Gergiev, London Symphony Orchestra


Following his principle that “the symphony must be like the world. It must embrace everything”, Mahler’s all-encompassing Third Symphony is his attempt to give all aspects of nature a voice. At its premiere it generated both praise and outrage from critics, some of whom were bewildered by its enormity.
