This Auckland Philharmonia concert features the eagerly-awaited world premiere of Ross Harris's Symphony No. 3. Orchestra spokespeople tell us that this newest work features the composer’s trademark quirks, including a violin solo for APO concertmaster Dimitri Atanassov and a part for piano accordion!
Ross composed his first two symphonies while he was composer in residence with the APO during 2005/2006 and the orchestra premiered both these works also. The "Second Symphony":http://sounz.org.nz/works/show/17631 for mezzo soprano and orchestra featured Lexus Award-winner Madeleine Pierard as soloist in its premiere performance and won the "2006 SOUNZ Contemporary Award":http://sounz.org.nz/distinction_instances/show/116 .
