John Elmsly Composer Portrait

This is a free concert but reservations are recommended.

Please email - info@aco.co.nz with your request.

Auckland born John Elmsly, known for music of delicacy, sensitivity, richness… his output has spanned orchestral, solo, chamber, choral, vocal and electroacoustic media, with notable works in many of these.

"The music had a clean refreshing quality… good melodic lines and nicely contrasted orchestral tone colours… spiced with just the right amount of harmonic dissonance." P.J.W, Otago Daily Times, July 1981.

"A dazzling virtuoso piece with timbres of flute and percussion to the fore… admirable conciseness and cogency." - W.Dart, NZ Listener, November 1982

ACO composer portraits are the only concerts of their kind in New Zealand, showcasing the body of work of a single NZ composer for a full concert.

"Auckland Chamber Orchestra's Composer Portraits have always been major testaments of cultural faith. National in significance, they present the men and women who catch the heart and spirit of our country in their music." - William Dart NZ Herald 20 June 2018
