40 Years of Music: Mahlers Three
Tickets selling out fast. I'm inProtected content
Gustav Mahler was a great nature lover. During the summers when he wrote his Symphony No. 3 d minor , he lived in a cabin outside Salzburg, by the Alps. Between the work sessions he took long walks in the beautiful surroundings and let the inspiration come. “It always seems so strange to me that most people when they talk about 'nature' only think of flowers, birds and forest fragrances. None of them know Dionysus or the great Pan. "
It is no coincidence that Mahler refers to the two Greek fertility, nature and music gods. In fact, Mahler considered renaming the entire symphony to "Pan" with reference to both the Greek god and the meaning of the word itself: "everything." Mahler also sympathized with the philosopher Friedrich Nietsch's idea of the exalted state of man, the "superhuman" who can face both the beauty of existence and its awfulness without folding, and who can embrace all life and nature.
