Delius – On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring
Delius – La Calinda (from the opera 'Koanga')
Bottesini – Double Bass Concerto in B minor - soloist Hiroshi Ikematsu
Beethoven – Symphony No. 7

Conductor Vincent Hardaker -
Vincent Hardaker is a 3rd year student at the New Zealand School of Music, studying the viola with Gillian Ansell and conducting with Ken young. His most recent accomplishment is conducting the NZSO as part of a conducting workshop with musical director Pietari Inkinen.

The jazz inspired harmonies of the lightly scored On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring and La Calinda, are sounds seldom heard in classical music. Delius' unique compositional voice comes through in the lush string texture and solo woodwind lines.

Bottesini was an Italian composer and double bassist known as “the Paganini of the double bass”, and is known particularly among double bassists for advancing the technique of the instrument. It is a beautiful work, and will be performed by virtuoso NZSO Principal Double Bass, Hiroshi Ikematsu.

Known for the popular Allegretto movement (used in films such as the King's Speech), Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 is a work that should be heard more often in its entirety. Despite the composer’s deafness and numerous controversial works, the Seventh remains an undisputed masterpiece.
