Pushing Boundaries - Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra


Thu 11 May 2017, 8:00pm

Where: Auckland Town Hall - Great Hall, 303 Queen St, CBD, Auckland

Restrictions: All Ages


Conductor: Rumon Gamba
Cello Torleif Thedeen

- Mahler Symphony No.10: Adagio
- Haydn Cello Concerto No.2 in D Major
- Stravinsky The Rite of Spring

Mahler wrote his Tenth Symphony under the shadow of death, completing only this movement. A slow burn of anguish, its tortured harmonies collapse into a despairing outburst, foreshadowing the century to come.

Haydn’s captivating concerto is the perfect example of his gentle humanity, humour and wisdom.

There is, however, very little that’s gentle about The Rite of Spring. When this electrifying piece of music exploded onto the stage in 1913, it literally caused a riot. Played by a gargantuan orchestra, its visceral, primal power will blow you away.
