COMPOSER FOCUS 2

Elgar is appreciated today for the intensity of his unspoken yearnings which found expression in his more personal works such as the nostalgic Sea Pictures and 13th Variation of the Enigma. In between are the Italian kaleidoscope of In the South and the Romance for Bassoon with NZSO Principal Bassoonist Lawrence Preman Tilson.

Mahler's beautiful Late Romantic song/symphony, based on settings of six Chinese poems, expresses the poignancy of life's brevity but also man's joy in earth's beauty and spring's return. In contrast is the mesmerising sound palette of Tan Dun, acclaimed composer of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Scored for large orchestra, Death and Fire is based on the paintings of Paul Klee and is a major highlight in the year's programme.

A new work by leading New Zealand composer Eve de Castro-Robinson features NZSO Principal Cellist David Chickering and leads to Richard Strauss's classical Oboe Concerto performed by Sydney Symphony's Principal Oboist Diana Doherty as the virtuosic soloist.
