'I've never heard the opening Pan Awakes music more marvellously vivid ... you won't hear more brilliant playing than the LSO's' Sunday Times

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.
