Conductor Kristjan Järvi has earned a reputation as “one of the canniest, and most innovative, programmers on the classical scene” (Reuters) and here he leads the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra for a one-night-only concert of works by two great contemporary composers.

The evening begins with Max Richter’s Infra, originally composed for the Royal Ballet’s 2008 production and described as “achingly gorgeous… an enveloping and moving work” (Pitchfork). Written as a reaction to the 7/7 bombings in London, Infra resonates with Richter’s characteristic musical voice, minimalism combined with sweeping melodies and harmonic complexity.

The dynamic programme continues with Philip Glass’ love song to one of the world’s mightiest rivers, Águas da Amazônia. Originally composed for a small ensemble, this new arrangement by Charles Coleman plumbs the potency and grandeur of a full symphony orchestra, augmented with members of Järvi’s Absolute Ensemble, to convey Glass’ exhilarating pursuit of adventure and awe.
