This tour is is the most extensive and prestigious international tour ever undertaken by the NZSO in its 63-year history. By invitation only, the orchestra, lead by it’s Music Director Pietari Inkinen, will perform in the greatest halls of Europe.
Among the works that will be heard in some of the most prestigious concert halls in the world are Douglas Lilburn’s iconic Overture Aotearoa and Three Pieces for Orchestra, a new work from Ross Harris especially written for the tour. Commissioned by NZSO CEO Peter Walls and his wife Kathryn, the work is a musical reflection on three great European cities within the context of composers strongly associated with them. The ‘movements’ are Vienna (Mahler), Düsseldorf (Schumann) and Lucerne (Wagner).
Peter Walls, NZSO CEO, says, “The NZSO is developing an enviable reputation in the symphonic world. Our commitment to artistic excellence is putting New Zealand on the world stage. As a nation we are good at celebrating our achievements in sport, business and innovation. This is another opportunity for New Zealanders to be proud.”
The start of the tour falls on the 64th anniversary of the NZSO’s very first rehearsal.
