Saturday 19th November 7.30pm (Pre-concert talk 6.40pm) Air Force Museum of NZ, Wigram

Concluding the Masterworks Series for 2016 is Sibelius’ Symphony No. 5, a work of compelling grandeur. Commissioned by the Finnish Government to honour the composer’s 50th birthday, it is one of the truly great symphonies of the late Romantic era.
Considered to be the starting point of modern music, Debussy’s alluring Prelude a l’apres-midi d’un faune perfectly captures an afternoon woodland scene.
To mark the end of his tenure as Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and in response to his own approaching 50th birthday, Finnish composer and conductor Esa Pekka Salonen wrote his Violin Concerto. It is a work that explores the widest range of expression and instrumental resources of the violin and ranges from virtuosic acrobatics to quiet reflection and meditation.
Performing the New Zealand premiere of Salonen’s Violin Concerto is Melbourne Symphony Orchestra’s co-Concertmaster, Eoin Andersen.
