For his third program of the season, Daniele Gatti conducts Mahler's multi-faceted and emotionally wide-ranging Symphony No. 3, a work notable for its length, difficulty, and overwhelming cumulative impact. For this performance, the expanded ranks of the BSO are joined by the eminent Swedish mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter, the women of the Tanglewood Festival Chorus, and the boys of the PALS Children's Chorus. Across its nearly 100-minute length, the broad musical canvas of Mahler's Third Symphony incorporates a full range of musical and emotional expression.
The Globe's reviewer was disappointed. As usual, Classical New England will broadcast and stream the Saturday concert at 8:00 p.m., with a pre-concert show at 7. The concert itself will be rebroadcast and streamed on Sunday April 7 at 1:00, and then become available for on demand listening.
On Sunday, MArch 31, as usual, there will be a retransmission of the previous week's concert. This time, it's the all Wagner program of March 21-26.
