Benjamin Northey – Chief Conductor
Serenity Thurlow – Viola

Claude Debussy – Nocturnes
Chris Cree Brown – Viola Concerto
Serge Prokofiev – Symphony No. 5 op.100 B flat major

Saturday 12th March 7.30pm (pre-concert talk 6.40pm) Air Force Museum of NZ, Wigram

Three different composers’ responses to the sights and sounds of the world around them are presented in this opening concert.
Debussy’s masterpiece Nocturnes was inspired by a set of paintings of the same name by American artist Whistler. Debussy evokes a sense of place, or an “impression” of three scenes – the gentle movement of clouds, a pulsating festival and the rhythmic motion of ocean waves in the moonlight.
CSO Principal Serenity Thurlow, one of this country’s finest violists, will be premiering a concerto by senior New Zealand composer, Chris Cree Brown.
Prokofiev’s fifth symphony was composed in the final stages of World War II and was described by the composer as “a symphony of greatness of the human spirit, a song of praise of free and happy mankind”. The symphony found immediate critical and popular success, and its joyous and optimistic themes continue to be embraced by worldwide audiences today.
