The SFS and MTT present Mahler Symphony No. 3 and Kindertotenlieder, the third installment of the SFS/MTT Mahler cycle. The Mahler Third, is the most expansive of the composer’s symphonies. There are moments of angst here, but the overwhelming message is of love’s redeeming power, and the peaks this great work scales are some of the most glorious in all music. The Mahler Third features mezzo-soprano Michelle DeYoung, Women of the SFS Chorus, the Pacific Boychoir and the San Francisco Girls Chorus. Also included in this two-disc set is a recording of Mahler’s heartbreaking Kindertotenlieder, with Michelle DeYoung.
