NZSO: Classic Hits

   12 Sep


NZSO Associate Conductor Hamish McKeich leads the orchestra on a country-wide tour, presenting a Classical Hits programme for the whole family.

Gillian Whitehead completes our series of commissions to acknowledge the future landfall celebrations.

NZSO’s Andrew Joyce features as soloist in Tchaikovsky’s Variations on a Rococo Theme – Tchaikovsky’s most famous piece for cello.

Schubert’s ‘Unfinished’ Symphony – which combines romantic, lyrical impulses with dark melancholic undertones – is instantly recognisable.

We also feature Debussy’s Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune and Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet, two works that never lose their power to bewitch audiences.

Schubert Symphony No. 8 in B minor, D.759, ‘Unfinished’
Tchaikovsky Variations on a Rococo Theme, Op. 33 
Gillian Whitehead Turanga-nui (World Premiere)
Debussy Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune
Tchaikovsky Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture
