The New Zealand School of Music Orchestra, conducted by Kenneth Young presents:

Lilburn - Symphony No. 1
Mozart - Piano Concerto in D minor, K466 with pianist Xing Wang
Vaughan Williams - Norfolk Rhapsody No. 1

In Lilburn’s 100th year, Te Kōkī New Zealand School of Music is marking his contribution and legacy through a number of events. In its final concert for 2015, the NZSM Orchestra will perform Lilburn’s First Symphony, having performed A Song of Islands and Diversions for Strings at concerts earlier in the year. Describing the First Symphony, NZSM Assoc Prof Robert Hoskins says its ‘long melodic lines convey the scenic severity of a mountain range’, and that ‘by the end we understand that the depicted vistas of mountain range and open sky map heroic aspiration and an enduring passion for life’.

The concert will also feature Mozart’s Piano Concerto in D minor, played by NZSM PhD student Xing Wang. Xing won the prestigious NZSM Concerto Competition earlier this year and is a graduate of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where she received both Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in piano performance.

Norfolk Rhapsody No. 1 by Vaughan Williams is also on the programme. Williams’ Norfolk Rhapsodies are based on folk songs that he collected in the English county of Norfolk in 1905. The first Rhapsody was written in 1906 and revised in 1914, and is the only one of the three Rhapsodies to survive in full.

Join us in the majestic Sacred Heart Cathedral in Thorndon for this special concert in Lilburn’s 100th year.
