There’s Mahler, then there’s Mahler reduced – and with a composer of this mammoth scale, it can feel refreshing to take the edge off. He is famous for blowing the full-scale symphony out of the water: loud becomes explosive, soft becomes heart-rending. In this modern arrangement of his Symphony No.4, you’ll hear his music stripped back to its core without taking anything away from the thrill. We’ll give you the chance to wade through the denser textures of Mahler and appreciate the finer nuances of his symphony – a real treat for orchestra fans! Don’t miss this deeply absorbing rendition, where Alexandra Flood’s soprano voice will soar above our Queensland Symphony Orchestra.

''In the intimacy of the QSO Studio, its luxurious rehearsal space in the ABC building at Southbank, it is possible to be much closer to the music and musicians. Sight-lines are excellent wherever one sits, in its non-allocated arrangement of rising seats. Additionally, the venue offers audiences an opportunity to enjoy works that would not usually be played by QSO in the Concert Hall.''Weekend Note, Review 2023
