March 8, 2019 at 7 pm — Estonia Concert Hall

3rd concert of the ROMANTICISM series

Gustav Mahler
Symphony No. 3

Symphony Orchestra of the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre
Estonian National Symphony Orchestra
Conductor PAUL MÄGI

The traditional joint concert by ENSO and the Symphony Orchestra of the EAMT will feature Symphony No. 3 by Gustav Mahler, which is 1.5 hours long, making it one of the longest symphonies even written.

Mahler was a successful conductor – starting as a conductor in provincial theatres, he managed to become the music director at the Vienna State Opera and the Metropolitan Opera House in New York. This, however, meant that his voluminous work received little attention from contemporaries and was only truly appreciated after the 100th anniversary of the composer’s birth in the 1960s. Mahler’s music has never been so popular among listeners and performers as it is today.

Paul Mägi, the music director and principal conductor of Vanemuine Theatre and the principal conductor of the Uppsala Chamber Orchestra, will conduct the performance. Before joining Vanemuine and Uppsala, he was the artistic director and principal conductor of the Estonian National Opera and the principal conductor of the Latvian National Symphony Orchestra.
