Conductor Alpesh Chauhan 
Violin Akiko Suwanai 

Gillian Whitehead Resurgences 
Mendelssohn Violin Concerto 
Sibelius Symphony No.2 


Ask any violinist for their favourite concerto and there’s a good chance you’ll be told Mendelssohn. It’s one of those pieces in which musicians can always find new depths, no matter how familiar it is.

The same is true of Sibelius’s life affirming Second Symphony- warm and expansive music which ends in exultation. 

Dame Gillian Whitehead has said Resurgences is about ‘living away from the sea and being drawn back to ideas of the sea, ideas that are very strong with all New Zealanders – looking out to distant horizons’.
