Soprano Christine Brewer, who thrilled Auckland audiences with her performance of Strauss lieder in 2011, returns in a concert devoted to the musical legacy of Vienna.

All four composers on tonight’s programme studied or worked in Vienna, and these works display many Viennese qualities, from a love of vocal writing in Marx and Beethoven, to the emotional depths of Mahler.

The concert opens and closes with two of the most famous symphonies of all time – the joyful, life affirming ‘Jupiter’ symphony from Mozart and the wonderful Adagio of Mahler’s tenth, a testament to Mahler’s belief in man's unquenchable spirit.
