Notes & Reviews:

Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 3 is not only Mahler's longest work, but is the longest symphony in the standard repertoire. A typical performance lasts between 90 and 105 minutes. The six-movement piece is regarded as one of Mahler's greatest, and has been recorded by all of the major orchestras. This recording of Mahler's 3rd symphony was taken in Moscow, 1961, and features contralto Valentina Levko as well as the Ladies of the Moscow State Choir and Children's Choir. Alongside Mahler's work is Prokofiev's October, Cantata Op 74, in a recording taken in Moscow in 1966. Both of these works feature the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus, conducted by Kirill Kondrashin.
