Alondra Conducts Mahler 3 – QSO
Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No.3 is one of his brightest, most extroverted scores. Be enthralled by its grandeur, poetic melodies and show-stopping brilliance. It’s a whopping symphony, the forces are huge and it scans a vast perspective of the composer’s views on the human condition. Lilli Paasikivi returns to Queensland Symphony Orchestra from her native Finland to sing this vocally-infused work. Previously, she sang in our Das Lied von der Erde and the Rückert Lieder to great acclaim. Lilli Passsikivi is a supreme storyteller. Her voice is not only beautiful but an ideal match for Mahler’s magnificent works. Get ready to be amazed! Queensland Symphony Orchestra Music Director is proudly supported by Tim Fairfax AC.
