|UBRIHIEN||Mestizo Suite||World Premiere|
Conductor: Sarah-Grace Williams
8pm Saturday 16 September Eugene Goossens Hall
Gustav Mahler’s outstanding first symphony cannot fail to stir the soul and leave one with a determined sense that the human spirit can triumph over anguish and loneliness. In a work which was considered crazily ambitious for its time, this magnificent symphony changed the genre forever. Opening with one of the most spellbinding moments of symphonic inspiration from the 19th century, this performance presented without interval will be a true journey of emotion and imagination.
This exhilarating evening of extraordinary firsts will also introduce Australian composer Nigel Ubrihien, one of the brilliant finalists from TMO’s inaugural Composer Development Program (2016), with the world premiere performance of his Mestizo Suite.
