Benjamin Northey Chief Conductor
Liv Sivkov Cello

LILBURN Aotearoa Overture
ELGAR Cello Concerto in E Minor
FARR Roar of a Thousand Tigers (World Premiere)

Gareth Farr's newly commissioned orchestral work, Roar of a Thousand Tigers, takes its name from Sherpa Tenzing Norgay's description to Sir Edmund Hillary of the violent, high altitude icy winds that buffet the uppermost slopes of Mount Everest. It is a symphonic homage to possibly the most famous New Zealander of all time - and the summit that he and Tenzing first reached in 1953.

In celebration of the 100 years since the birth of Sir Edmund, with the support of Creative New Zealand, the symphony was commissioned by the Hillary Centenary Steering Committee.

Performing Elgar's intensely emotional concerto, Russian-born cellist Lev Sivkov has won 1st prize in a number of prestigious music competitions, including the 2015 Naumburg International Cello Competition. He is currently Principal Cello with Philharmonia Zurich and performs across Europe as a soloist and chamber musician.

Douglas Lilburn's Aotearoa Overture explores the shimmer of light on the sea surrounding the New Zealand coastline. Lilburn wished to reflect a sense of freshness and exhilaration in this, one of his earlier symphonic compositions.

Wheelchair and companion tickets are $16.50 each plus fees. To book, call the Eventfinda phone sales team on 0800 289 849 or email
