The Trumpet Shall Sound

Where: Auckland Town Hall - Great Hall, 303 Queen St, CBD, Auckland

Restrictions: All Ages


Important Information
Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra regrets to announce that Norwegian trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth has withdrawn from her scheduled concert performance, ‘The Trumpet Shall Sound’ on 6 May.

Ms Helseth has withdrawn from a series of concerts over the coming months to recuperate from exhaustion, and we wish her the very best for a speedy recovery.

We are, however, delighted to announce that Swiss-Italian trumpeter Giuliano Sommerhalder will step in to perform in Ms Helseth’s stead. Named by BBC as one of its New Generation artists in 2008, 29-year-old Mr Sommerhalder has been acclaimed for his performances on both the modern and baroque trumpet.

Eivind Gulberg Jensen Conductor
Giuliano Sommerhalder Trumpet

Haydn Symphony No.34
Haydn Trumpet Concerto
Beethoven Symphony No. 7

Muscular and lithe, Beethoven’s Symphony No.7 is a creature of irresistible rhythmic drive. Yet when it was premiered in 1813, the audience demanded an immediate repeat Of the solemn, deeply moving second movement.

Giuliano Sommerhalder joins forces with Eivind Gullberg Jensen to play the very first great trumpet concerto – Haydn’s evergreen favourite.

Haydn’s music begins the concert, with his light and airy Symphony No.34.
