SUBSCRIPTION SEASON 5, SERIES 1 Dylan Lardelli's Tumbu featuring NZSO Co-Principal Clarinettist Patrick Barry precedes Joseph Kalichstein's NZSO debut in Chopin's First Piano Concerto, which sold out at its first performance in 1830 and has charmed audiences ever since.

New Zealand Symphony Orchestra SUBSCRIPTION SERIES 6 - SERIES 1

Extra-musical inspiration informs this fascinating line-up presented by first-time guest conductor Hannu Lintu. The sound colours of Schoenberg's influential Five Orchestral Pieces have parallels with Expressionist painting, while Bernstein's Serenade, "a series of related statements in praise of love", was inspired by Plato' s Symposium, and the final orchestral work of the ever-Romantic Rachmaninov confirms his lifelong fascination with rich ecclesiastical chants.

Hannu Lintu - Conductor Cho-Liang Lin - Violin

Schoenberg: Five Pieces for Orchestra Op 16 1949 version Bernstein: Serenade Rachmaninov: Symphonic Dances

New Zealand Symphony Orchestra COMPOSER FOCUS 3 RAVEL Everybody's wish list for a programme of Ravel's music! Living in Paris but forever drawn to the warmth and exotica of the South, Ravel poured colour, rhythm and dazzling orchestration into his music from the Spanish Alborada and percussive Concerto for the Left Hand to the French Valses and exquisite Daphnis and Chloe. And of course, there's Boléro.

Friday 25 November at 7:00pm TOWN HALL WELLINGTON

Michael Christie - Conductor Michael Houstoun - Piano

Ravel: Alborada del gracioso Ravel: Piano Concerto for the Left Hand Ravel: Bolero Ravel: Valses nobles et sentimentales Ravel: Daphnis et Chloe Suite No 2
