Vienna Philharmonic: Mahler's Symphony No. 3



The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, Leonard Bernstein at the podium, perform Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 3; they are accompanied by Christa Ludwig (contralto solo), the Vienna State Opera Chorus and the Vienna Boys Choir in this 1973 concert. This is one of the longest symphonies in the classical repertoire; a typical concert can last almost 100 minutes.
