Lilburn | Aotearoa Overture
Anthony Ritchie | Flute concerto
Fauré | Pavane
Walton | Crown Imperial
Holst | Somerset Rhapsody
Hindemith | Symphonic Metamorphosis of Themes by Carl Maria von Weber
You won't want to miss this kaleidoscopic series of orchestral vignettes, showcasing the rich and lyrical textures of the romantic orchestra.
Setting the scene is Douglas Lilburn's Overture: Aotearoa - shimmering and triumphant - paired with Anthony Ritchie's equally vibrant and lyrical Flute Concerto. Gabrielle Faure's melancholy yet hopeful Pavane provides a poignant contrast to Walton's ever-popular Crown Imperial - Coronation March.
The programme ends with two indulgently lush mini masterworks from Holst and Hindemith: full of life, colour and humour.
