Auckland Philhamonia Orchestra | Colours of Brass


Byrd The Earl of Oxford’s March
Gabrieli Sonata pian’ e forte
Giazotto Adagio in G minor
Clarke The Prince of Denmark’s March
Gemma Peacocke New work for Brass and Percussion (world premiere)

The majesty and grandeur of brass instruments has been celebrated since the Renaissance. Not just for their power, either. They’re thrilling when played softly, too, and indeed the title of Giovanni Gabrieli’s piece means ‘Quiet and Loud Sonata’ because it was one of the first pieces to specify the level of volume with which the instruments should be played.

This programme explores brass music from Elizabethan England to the present day, with New Zealander Gemma Peacocke being the latest composer to fall under its spell.

Notes Fund - Music for this concert has been supported by Anne Norris & Anne Stewart and Neil Cording
