Qso, Alondra And Mahler 1 | Qso Maestro Series says

QSO’s Music Director Alondra de la Parra opens Season 2017 with the next instalment of her epic Mahler cycle.

The 'Titan', a work of brilliance and extraordinary scale, set the composer on his journey as the great symphonist; this is the perfect entrée for a Mahler odyssey.

Add Mendelssohn’s glittering jewel of a concerto in the hands of young pianist Zhang Zuo, and the grand 'Tannhäuser' Overture, and you can expect an evening of power, sparkle and spectacle.

The 'Tannhäuser' Overture marks the commencement of QSO's 70th Anniversary celebrations in 2017 and was the first work performed at the QSO's inaugural concert in 1947 in the Brisbane City Hall.

Wagner: 'Tannhäuser' Overture
Mendelssohn: Piano Concerto No.1
Mahler: Symphony No.1 'Titan'

The QSO Music Director is proudly supported by Timothy Fairfax AC.
Co-presented by QSO and QPAC.
