In the 1780s, Paris audiences went wild for Haydn’s symphonies. Cherubini reported how orchestral players there “received them with rapture”. A century later, Bruckner pursued divine exaltation in his Seventh Symphony. Wagner sought rapture on earth, dropping his work on The Ring to write a passionate love offering to Mathilde Wesendonck in the Wesendonck Lieder.

Our 2014 season opens in suitably grand style with a performance of Bruckner’s mighty Seventh Symphony. Partnered by Haydn’s 84th Symphony, subtitled In nomine Domini, these two works make a fitting offering for the Wellington Anglican Cathedral’s 50th anniversary celebrations.

We are hugely honoured to present Deborah Humble for a New Zealand premiere of Wagner’s Wesendonck Lieder as arranged by the great German modernist composer, Hans Werner Henze. Humble is one of Australia’s most successful international artists. In this richly hued orchestration, the Wesendonck songs clearly point the way to Tristan and Isolde, while the slow movement of the Symphony is Bruckner’s memorial to Wagner – the musician Bruckner revered above all others. The concise final movement of the Bruckner is also the most ‘Haydnesque’ work he ever composed.

This is a tightly focused programme that begins our exploration of Haydn’s Paris Symphonies and offers an organic progression from this classical genius through to the master of the late 19th century and his disciple.
