In his Symphony No. 3, his longest and most expansive, Mahler was inspired by a passage from Nietzsche’s Thus Spake Zarathustra and a series of folk poems which he set to music while writing the symphony. Finding links in the sounds of nature, representatives of a world in tumult, Mahler wished to allude to the turbulent life on Earth before the arrival of eternal paradise. At Gulbenkian Música, he will play with the acclaimed Wiebke Lehmkuhl, a regular performer at the Bayreuth Festival, conducted by one of the great maestros of our time, the Spaniard Pablo Heras-Casado.
