Sopranos and Altos of Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir

Gustav Mahler always thought big, but even by his standards, his Third Symphony is extraordinary. One of the biggest symphonies ever written, it’s a concert in its own right, teeming with distant trumpets, children’s songs, glittering marches and lofty mountaintop meditations. Mahler throws them all into the mix before ending with a ravishing hymn to love. It’s less a symphony, more an all-embracing emotional odyssey – and with Vasily Petrenko conducting Artist in Residence Jennifer Johnston, this should be something exhilarating.
Vasily Petrenko will provide an introduction from stage before this concert, to help you get even more from the experience. Please note this performance will not have an interval.
