Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Fri 9 Oct, 6:30pm – 8:00pm


Michael Fowler Centre, 111 Wakefield Street, Wellington


All Ages

Hamish McKeich, Conductor
Emma Pearson, Soprano

R Strauss, Metamorphosen
R Strauss, Four Last Songs
Tchaikovsky, Symphony No. 5

Two of Strauss’ late works deal in their own way with the end of all things. Metamorphosen has been interpreted as a lament to the destruction of Germany in World War II. In Four Last Songs, Strauss expresses the mellow sweetness of looking back, in the winter of your years, upon a life well lived.

The programme concludes with Tchaikovsky’s well-loved Fifth Symphony. Not well-received upon its premiere, it has won a place in every concert-goer’s heart for its colourful orchestration, its emotional qualities, and its brooding, soul-stirring melodies.
