Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Symphony No. 41 K551 C major “Jupiter”

Saturday 10th September 7.30pm (Pre-concert talk6.40pm) Charles Luney Auditorium

Making his conducting debut with the CSO, US-based Eckart Preu has been described by the New York Times as “[a] fiery conductor with a kinetic style”.
Mozart’s last symphony was considered to be his grandest and most joyous. Revolutionary in its conception, it is an exhilarating and rhythmically energetic work.
Reflecting similar rhythmic vitality are two works by American composers Aaron Copland and Frank Zappa. Copland’s Appalachian Spring was originally composed as a ballet for the dancer and choreographer Martha Graham and beautifully captures the pioneer spirit of US open spaces. Bristling with urban vigour, Zappa’s music combines elements of jazz, rock, funk and western classical traditions.
We welcome back pianist Stephen De Pledge to perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No 20 K466. Stephen is currently Senior Lecturer in Piano at the University of Auckland and, in addition to extensive international recital and chamber music performances, features regularly as a soloist with all the major orchestras throughout New Zealand.
