Auckland Town Hall

Classical music

Conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto
Flute Melanie Lançon 
Harp Ingrid Bauer

Jennifer Higdon City Scape: river sings a song to trees 
Mozart Concerto for Flute and Harp 
Vaughan Williams A London Symphony 


The centrepiece of this concert features our very own principal flute, Melanie Lançon and principal harp, Ingrid Bauer, who are bound to shine with Mozart’s sorbet concerto.

It separates music for two quite different cities. Jennifer Higdon’s tribute to her home town, Atlanta, celebrates the ‘lush carpet’ of its parks and gardens, fed by ‘streams, creeks and rivers’. The American conductor Robert Spano gave its premiere. 

Vaughan Williams, despite The Lark Ascending, saw himself as a Londoner. His portrait of the Edwardian metropolis at the height of its power is no mere postcard, but a subtle portrait of the city he loved.
