Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra | Transformations


André de Ridder | Conductor
Olli Mustonen | Piano

Ross Harris | Symphony No.7 (world premiere)
Shostakovich | Piano Concerto No.1
R. Strauss | Death and Transfiguration

Ross Harris is an artist of deep integrity and powerful imagination. He’s also an old friend of the APO, which has given the premieres of all his symphonies, and is eagerly looking forward to doing so again. This concert promises to be an important night for New Zealand music.

Shostakovich wrote his gleefully crazy concerto at 26. It’s uproarious music from a high-spirited young man. Strauss was even younger when he composed a tone-poem set at an artist’s deathbed. We hear the high ideals the artist sought all his life, and at the last hour, the radiant transformation of his soul.

Performed in association with ISCM World Music Days 2020.
