Conductor Jose Aparicio and pianist Jian Liu with Hawke's Bay Orchestra present an exciting programme.
Beethoven's Leonore Overture No 3; Schumann's Piano Concerto in A minor, Op 54; Brahms' Symphony No 1 in C minor, Op 68.
It took Brahms 21 years to write this first symphony. Aware of the grandiosity of Beethoven, it must have been difficult to take the first step. Brahms' first symphony speaks of struggle and triumph and contains some of the most emblematic Brahmsian themes. Wellington lecturer and concert pianist Jian Liu joins us to perform Schumann's exciting A minor Piano Concerto, a colourful and passionate piece sure to delight any concertgoer.
Held in the Blyth Performing Arts Cente.
