The Hawke’s Bay Orchestra (HBO) is back to present a Sunday afternoon concert featuring works by Beethoven, Juan Crisóstomo de Arriaga and Mozart.
The Mozart Sinfonia Concertante is a ‘double’ concerto, featuring viola and violin soloists. Performing with the HBO are two of New Zealand’s most experienced and fine players – violinist Monique Lapins and violist Gillian Ansell.
“Hawke’s Bay has a phenomenal opportunity to enjoy the brilliant playing of two of the country’s finest musicians in the Sinfonia Concertante, which is a bubbling concerto full of excitement and tender expression,” says HBO musical director and conductor José Aparicio.
The orchestra will also perform the exhilarating dancing apotheosis of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7; the Allegretto second movement enjoying a resurgence in popularity when it featured in the film ‘The King’s Speech’.
Rounding out the concert is Spanish Basque composer de Arriaga’s Los esclavos felices ‘The Happy Slaves’ overture, written when he was only 14.
Tickets available through iTicket or at the door on the day.
