Highly acclaimed conductor, Yoel Levi returns to New Zealand to conduct Russian and French Masterworks with the NZSO for the first time since 2004.

Tchaikovsky’s Manfred Symphony, Shostakovich’s Symphony No.12, The Year 1917 and Saint-Saën’s Piano Concerto No 2, are just three of the works being performed by the NZSO in this epic tour of New Zealand.

RAVEL - La Valse
SAINT-SAËNS - Piano Concerto No 2
TCHAIKOVSKY - Manfred Symphony

The Ballets Russes never danced the score Diaghilev requested from Ravel but La Valse took to the concert hall instead.

It's colourful depiction of a crowded ballroom increases in nightmarish tumult to finally dissolve in an excitingly unstable cataclysmic whirl.

Saint-Saëns’ Second Piano Concerto initially pays homage to Bach, then treats us to a concoction of Gallic wit, sprinkled with brittle ghostliness, before ending theatrically with a driving, tarantella-like force.

Romantic composers were drawn to the supernatural elements of Tchaikovsky’s four scenes that form the symphony based on Byron’s Manfred Symphony.
