Conductor: Giordano Bellincampi
Violin: Ning Feng
Salina: Fisher New work
Beethoven: Violin Concerto
Nielsen: Symphony No.5
The extraordinarily talented young New Zealand violinist and composer, Salina Fisher, was the youngest ever winner of The SOUNZ Contemporary Award, and she’s won it again since. We are eagerly waiting to hear what she’s got in store for us in her new piece.
APO favourite Ning Feng returns with Beethoven’s titanic concerto, one of the summits of the violinist’s repertoire.
Giordano Bellincampi continues his survey of his compatriot Carl Nielsen’s music with this remarkable symphony. The then-recent First World War is echoed in staggeringly violent music, with a rogue snare drum doing its best to upend the orchestra.
