At the heart of this programme are three evocative works spanning exactly 100 years. Fauré’s Pelléas et Mélisande Suite (1892) depicting the tragic story of Princess Mélisande, and regarded as Fauré’s orchestral masterpiece; Jack Speirs’ Night Music, written in 1992; and Rodrigo’s Concierto Andaluz (1967), a fascinating blend of baroque-influenced and impressionistic Spanish music. Making their début performance with the DSO as soloists for Rodrigo’s Concierto is the remarkable NZ Guitar Quartet.

Mozart’s Haffner symphony is amongst his last symphonies which are considered amongst the pinnacle of his compositions.

Conducting this concert is Wellington-based Kenneth Young, who conducts leading New Zealand and Australian orchestras.
