Australian World Orchestra | Mahler 9 – Sydney
24 November 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm AEDT
This November at the Sydney Opera House, experience the capstone Mahler event of the year when internationally renowned conductor Alexander Briger returns home to lead the acclaimed Australian World Orchestra, performing one of the 20th century’s most celebrated orchestral masterpieces, Mahler 9.
“Conducting this orchestra is like lassoing galaxies.”
Sir Simon Rattle
An incomparable musical accomplishment, Mahler 9 carries audiences through a deeply emotional and exhilarating contemplation on the transience of life and the miracle of transfiguration.
Join us for this gala evening with an extraordinary array of Australian musicians, drawn from the Berlin and Hong Kong Philharmonics; the Chicago, London, New Zealand and Australian state and national Symphony Orchestras and Ensembles, as they combine under the unassailable banner of the Australian World Orchestra to present an unforgettable “orchestral Rolls Royce” concert experience.
