Important Information

Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra (APO) regrets to announce that German violinist Viviane Hagner has cancelled her scheduled appearance with the APO in October, citing family health reasons.

The APO sends its best wishes to Ms Hagner and her family, and we look forward to inviting her back in the future.

Despite this misfortune, the APO is pleased to announce that outstanding Norwegian violinist Henning Kraggerud has been secured as the replacement for Ms Hagner in the New Zealand Herald Premier Series concert ‘Virtuoso Violin’ on Thursday 8 October. Hailed by The Telegraph as having “an extraordinary sweetness of tone”, Kraggerud is an established favourite amongst European audiences, and performs in New Zealand for the first time in this concert.

Schoenberg ‘Accompaniment to a cinematographic scene’
Bruch Violin Concerto No.1
Mahler Symphony No.1 ‘Titan’

Bruch wrote several more violin concertos but his first has always been his best known and most beloved. And deservedly so – it’s a captivating blend of romance and Gypsy vivacity. Played by international star Henning Kraggerud, this will be a performance to remember.

Gustav Mahler’s astonishing first symphony is the music of a young man first discovering his musical universe. It begins with the primaeval sound of the forest, and the world awakening: it tells stories of love, death, nature; it ends with the sheer elation of being alive. Stupendous, overpowering, exhilarating, it will sweep you away.
