Powerful sound

Gustav Mahler's 8th Symphony is an exceptional work not only because of its large-scale scoring with three choirs, eight vocal soloists and an orchestra of well over a hundred instrumentalists, which earned it the nickname »Symphony of a Thousand«. It also impresses with an enormous variety of musical means and forms as well as the ingenious interplay between the two very different texts set to music - the hymn »Veni creator spiritus« and the final scene from Goethe's »Faust«.
Mahler himself considered the 8th Symphony, whose premiere in Munich in 1910 was a triumphant success as a composer and conductor, to be his most important work. »Imagine that the universe begins to sound and resound. It is no longer human voices, but planets and suns orbiting«, he wrote about the symphony to the conductor Willem Mengelberg.
