Benjamin Northey chief conductor.
Tony Chen Lin piano.

Holmes Ancient Rhythms.
Ravel Piano Concert in G major.
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6 'Pathétique'.

Tchaikovsky's dramatic and powerful Sixth Symphony is a masterful example of the composer at the full height of his power.

He considered it to be "the best thing I ever composed or shall compose", which proved to be sadly prophetic, as Tchaikovsky died of cholera after the symphony's first performance.

Ravel was a great admirer of jazz and what he described as 'its rich and diverting rhythm'. Imbued with jazz influences and overflowing with exuberance, Ravel's Piano Concert in G major also features moments of languid expressiveness and refined elegance.

Currently based in Berlin, New Zealand pianist Tony Chen Lin joins the CSO to perform Ravel's Piano Concerto in G major.

Leonie Holmes'Ancient Rhythms was inspired by the poem "The Journey" by Tessa Stephens and features powerful percussion and dramatic orchestral interjections.
