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.
