Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 3 in D minor explores and seeks to represent the "emergence of life from inert elements, about the beginning of life itself upon the planet. Then following in an upward chain of creative events, he follows the coming forth of plant life with the animal kingdom, then man, then the spirit realm of angels, and finally ending with God’s love. 

"How remarkable it is that Mahler would be so moved and would understand so clearly that the love of God is the guiding force and destination of all creation. These ennobling thoughts are more than powerful, they are revelatory, and as the music slowly progresses, first in strings, then in winds, and finally with brass, there is no equivocation in their fulfillment. We end up where we always wanted to be—surrounded and guided by love and with God." (Kory Katseanes, conductor)
