New Zealand Symphony Orchestra 2014 Season

New Zealand Symphony Orchestra 2014 Season

Step away from the everyday world and let your imagination take flight with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.

Collaborating with giants of the conducting world and stunning international soloists, our 2014 season is crowded with wonderful orchestral masterpieces as well as incredible contemporary music from home and abroad.

Maestros like Edo de Waart and Alexander Lazarev will lead the orchestra in performing vast, impressive works such as Mahler’s 9th and Shostakovich’s 15th symphonies. Our NZSO Music Director Pietari Inkinen will display his remarkable abilities conducting two cycles of Beethoven’s nine symphonies, with each cycle played over four nights. The final symphony will include a stunning line-up of international opera stars, ensuring an unforgettable climax to this beloved masterpiece.

Experienced virtuosos such as HÃ¥kan Hardenberger – rated as the greatest trumpeter alive – and the extraordinary pianist Alexander Melnikov will join the mix, along with new stars of the classical world including American cello prodigy Alisa Weilerstein and Simone Lamsma, one of the world’s leading violinists.

In December we revealed our 2014 Season App – a bold new step for us. It's an interactive and comprehensive digital tool packed full to the brim with additional content to further enrich your experience with us. Find out how to download a copy from our website

People of all ages and stages of music appreciation can enjoy this Season. Make the NZSO part of your year and experience the captivating, glorious sounds of your national orchestra. Enjoy!
