Das himmlische Leben

Thu 18/04/2019 19:00 - 21:00
Tickets: 37.00-7.00 €


Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 arguably transcends earthly bounds with its soprano aria and almost childish vision of the abundance of celestial life. 

Susanna Mälkki never fails to discover new sides in Mahler, and Camilla Tilling debuts with the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra with a programme she has made her own.
