The 2023 ‘Finalists Concert’ of the Dunedin Concerto Competition in partnership with the Dunedin Symphony Orchestra (DSO) and the Dunedin Youth Orchestra (DYO) is here. The DYO, conducted by Nathaniel Otley, performs the infectious Latin-American rhythms of Marquez’s “Danzon No.2” and the power and majesty of Sibelius’s “Finlandia”, along with new works by New Zealand composers Grace Shaw "Heroica", Maddy Parkins-Craig "Canvas Bags Won't Save Us" and John Rimmer "Waitaki Reflections" in the first half of the concert.
The DSO, with some DYO members in its ranks, conducted by Anthony Ritchie, accompanies the finalists in the second half of the concert with three young musicians, Boudewijn Keenan (cello) playing Tchaikovsky's 'Rococo Variations', Elio Oh (violin) playing Sibelius's 'Violin Concerto', and Cameron Monteath (piano) playing Poulenc's 'Piano Concerto'.
