Discover why Stravinsky’s avant-garde 1913 ballet score for The Rite of Spring sparked a riot in the theatre on its Paris premiere.

Stravinsky specialist Jaime Martín leads the orchestra in this famously controversial work, full of savage force and fiery beauty. First though we visit the calm English meadows of Vaughan Williams’ imagination for his widely-loved The Lark Ascending, featuring the singing violin of NZSO Concertmaster Vesa-Matti Leppänen.

Swedish cello star Jakob Koryani is a perfect match for the modern and melodic Cello Concerto by William Walton. The elemental power of nature thrills in this fresh and astringent programme.
