Music for the Brave: Away and at Home

Leys Orchestra presents a narrated concert recalling the patriotic music of a century ago that roused brave men sent overseas and comforted those at home. A special highlight is the performance of ‘Military Fantasia’, which was written for the Auckland Savage Club by HG Dutton 100 years ago. Completed within a month of NZ joining Britain in the war, this unpublished work was recently rediscovered in the Leys Orchestra music collection.

Guest violin soloist Neil Shepherd returns to delight us with colourful masterpieces by Fritz Kreisler, who also fought in the war.
