Rafael Kubelik conducting the Symphonie-Orcherter und Frauenchor des Bayerischen Rundfunks performing a live recording of Mahler's 3rd.

Mahler approached his third symphony with the high aim of creating a cosmos of inner faces and conceptions. He wrote the following in 1896 to his bride at that time, Anna von Mildenburg, from his hermitage on Lake Attersee: "But I have already written you that I am at work on a large creation. Now, try to imagine a work so large that it actually reflects the entire world - one is, so to speak, only an instrument upon which the universe plays. My Symphony will be something the likes of which the world has not yet heard! All of Nature receives a voice in it and tells deeply secret things that one might have sensed in dreams! I tell you, sometimes I myself have an uncanny feeling at some places in the work, and it seems to me as if I had not made it myself at all."

This medial transparency, in which the creative artist is depersonalized to the point of being a mere tool of higher powers, is the key to the understanding of this symphony, which, by virtue of its dimensions alone, requires totality: a performance duration of approximately one and a half hours. Thus, the work tolerates no other music played before or after it.

Live Recording by the Bavarian Broadcasting Company on April 20, 1967.
