Mahler Symphony No 9 in D conducted by Bernard Haitink, with the Concertgebouw Orchestra led by JOAP VAN ZWEDEN
Introduced by Douglas Reitn Bernard Haitink, in his last season as principal conductor of the Concertgebouw, has chosen the culmination of Mahler's symphonic work as his personal farewell. The Ninth Symphony was actually Mahler's tenth. His superstition about the many composers who died on completing their ninth symphonies caused him to label the Song of the Earth, in reality a vocal symphony, a song cycle and thus escape the jinx. But the Ninth Mahler's last completed work, remains one of the great testaments of pain and reconciliation in the face of death.

It is not how much you do, but how much love you put in the doing. MOTHER TERESA In 1950 a 40-year-old nun founded the Congregation of the Missionaries of Charity to help the sick and dying in the slums of Calcutta. Today
Mother Teresa is the heart of an organisation with houses in 70 countries. Her zeal carries her through an exhausting schedule, regardless of personal comfort or safety. Her activities in war-torn Beirut led one startled officer to exclaim 'the last thing we wanted was a saint', but Mother Teresa succeeded where diplomats failed.
