Conductor - Giordano Bellincampi
Piano - Michael Endres

Leonie Holmes - For just a little moment… (World premiere)
Schumann - Piano Concerto
Tchaikovsky - Symphony No.4

Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony opens with a stark fanfare which, Tchaikovsky said, represented ‘Fate, that ominous power’, adding ‘There is no alternative but to submit to Fate’. His friend and patron, Mme von Meck, heard ‘profound, terrifying despair’ in this music. True, but it has also passion, drama and ultimately catharsis.

NZ-based German pianist Michael Endres joins the APO with Schumann’s ineffably poetic concerto, and to open the concert, a new work from the multifaceted Auckland composer, and former APO composer-in-residence, Leonie Holmes.

NOTE: Change of artist - Michael Endres replaces Ingrid Fliter
