25 August, 26 August @ Perth Concert Hall
West Australian Symphony Orchestra

A titanic struggle with the forces of fate.

Conceived on a gigantic scale, Mahler’s Sixth is a symphony of extreme expressive intensity, demanding enormous interpretive commitment from both conductor and orchestra. Its legendary hammer blows are moments of raw brutality: theatrically exhilarating but emotionally devastating. Sonically spectacular and vividly imaginative, this is one of Mahler’s most awe-inspiring creations.
To open this concert, Japanese-born American violinist Karen Gomyo offers a sophisticated entrée – Mozart’s exquisite Third Violin Concerto.

“★★★★★ …Fisch and the WASO could not be faulted…. It was music mastery of high order.” – The West Australian 2016
