A masterpiece first played by the Gürzenich-Orchester. The premiere of Mahler’s Third Symphony took place in June 1902 in Krefeld (not far from Düsseldorf) but it was indeed the Gürzenich-Orchester of Cologne who gave that first performance, greeted with acclaim. This was not always the composer’s experience with his masterpieces.

Originally conceived as a hymn to Nature, in which the inert chaos of the opening movement is gradually left behind, the work calls for enormous forces (large orchestra, women’s choir, boys’ choir and contralto soloist) and, at each hearing, leaves an unforgettable impression on the audience. Such was the case in October 2018, when François-Xavier Roth led the esteemed successors of the work’s first interpreters in this latest Mahler adventure.

Sunday Times

Roth and the Cologne orchestra have a knack of making the most familiar Mahler sound new, with vivid extremes of colour and dynamics. Hearing the prodigious Third makes me marvel afresh at it, and at the stupidity of critics who were deaf to its greatness
