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!
