New Zealand Herald Premier Series

Conductor: Giordano Bellincampi
Violin Ilya Gringolts

- Grieg Peer Gynt: Suite No.1
- Brahms Violin Concerto
- Nielsen Symphony No.3, ‘Sinfonia espansiva’

Carl Nielsen is a composer close to Giordano Bellincampi’s heart. His Third Symphony packs a vast punch: cosmic exuberance, preternatural calm, a radiant hymn of happiness. This extraordinary piece promises to be a highlight of the season.

Opening with the clean tranquillity of Morning, Grieg’s first suite from his music to the play Peer Gynt ends in its hero’s escape from the terrifying Mountain King.

Brahms’ Violin Concerto is one of the biggest peaks in a violinist’s repertoire. Yet it’s also a light of heart, with a melting, pastoral oboe solo, and a scintillating tribute to the gypsy fiddlers Brahms adored.
