Conductor Alondra de la Parra
Piano Jan Lisiecki (Australian debut, QSO exclusive)
Mozart Piano Concerto No.20 in D Minor
Mahler Symphony No.5
Alondra de la Parra’s Mahler cycle continues.
First QSO brings you the Australian debut of Jan Lisiecki. This internationally acclaimed pianist, noted for his award-winning discography and widely regarded as an “aristocrat of the piano”, performs one of Mozart’s most popular piano concertos.
We conclude with Mahler’s blockbuster Fifth Symphony, renowned for its famously exquisite adagietto, featured in the movie Death in Venice.
