Wagner, Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg
W A Mozart, Piano Concerto No. 27
Prokofiev, Symphony No. 5

Chief Conductor of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra and soon-to-be Chief Conductor of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Vasily Petrenko draws out performances “rich in mood and character … a conductor with an intelligent, informed but deep love of this music.”

Wagner’s comic opera Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg begins with a Prelude masterfully presenting the main melodies of the opera before cleverly combining all four for a glorious climax. The brightness of Wagner’s tunes is matched in Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 5, which he wrote as “a hymn to free and happy Man, to his mighty powers, his pure and noble spirit.”

The NZSO welcomes stunningly talented Korean pianist Yeol Eum Son for the first time to perform Mozart’s last Piano Concerto, No. 27. A versatile performer, Son’s interpretations of Mozart are garnering notice. Her all-Mozart album with Sir Neville Marriner and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields received abundant praise, with The Times calling her performance, “a model of clarity and fleetness.”
