The Auckland Youth Orchestra, conducted by Antun Poljanich, presents:

Kihoon Sung: Niflheim
Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No.2 Soloist: Kent Isomura
Strauss: Don Juan

The revolutionary "Don Juan" demands the orchestra's musicians to perform at the extremes of their instruments' ranges. The music features dramatic flourishes and heart-rending melodies.

Rachmaninov's 2nd piano concerto is considered by many to be one of the greatest works of the piano repertoire. The music is rich, sonorous and passionate and contains a fiendish cadenza - hear Kent Isomura's spectacular performance. Some may be interested to know that the 1975 hit single "All by Myself" was based on the beautiful second movement of this concerto!

Niflheim, a new work by young NZ composer Kihoon Sung, is one of the nine worlds in Norse mythology and is known as the realm of ice. The short work depicts this realm before it was completely frozen over. This composition by Kihoon was the winner of AYO's 2019 Composition Competition and it is premiered here in this concert series.

AYO is a full symphony orchestra comprised of 75 of Auckland's most talented young musicians (ages 14-24). AYO toured to Germany and Slovenia last year, receiving standing ovations from capacity audiences at their six performances - don't miss this experience!

Entry by Donation. Presented in association with Thursdays at Seven.
