Paavo in London
Paavo has a date with the London Symphony Orchestra Sunday, June 25, at 7:30 pm at The Barbican in London, ENGLAND
And, right on the heels of performing the Mahler 2 in Paris, this time the program features Mahler's monumental Symphony No. 3 with Lilli Paasikivi, alto; the Ladies of the London Symphony Chorus; and The Boys of King's College Choir, Cambridge.
From the LSO website: "Mahler declared that in his Third Symphony he wanted to 'create a gigantic musical poem, including all the phases of evolution, and depicting its gradual ascent. It begins at the heart of inanimate nature and progresses to the love of God.' The result (scored for mezzo-soprano, choirs of women and boys and a large orchestra) is not only one of his most massive works, but also one of his most all-embracing."
Tickets are £5, £11, £16, £21, and £27.
