In his symphonies Mahler was concerned to explore the essential issues at the heart of man’s existence: the conflict of the life-force and the death-force. In this ambitious pursuit his Third and Sixth symphonies employ vivid imagery with magnificent orchestral assurance. To complement the symphonies we will also consider aspects of Mahler’s extraordinary life and career. The music examples will be provided on excellent hi-fi equipment, including DVD with large screen.
