SCENES: TRUST WAIKATO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Sunday 5 November, 2.30pm (pre-concert talk, 1.45pm)
St Paul’s Collegiate School Chapel, Hamilton
Luca Manghi – flute soloist
Rupert D’Cruze – conductor
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 Fauré’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. Join us for a pre-concert talk at 1.45pm, illuminating the stories behind the music.
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
This concert will also be presented in Putāruru on Saturday 4 November, 4.00pm at The Plaza (Koha Entry)
