Dvorak - 'American' Suite in A major,  Op.98b

This suite mixes the American influences of a jaunty cakewalk and a Native American dance, with the energy and melodies of the Slavic tradition.


Haydn - Oboe Concerto in C (soloist: Alex Wu)
An attractive and bright work with tuneful melodies and virtuosic passages. Our soloist is Alex Wu, AYO’s principal oboe and a prize winner in both the NZ and Australian Double Reed Societies’ competitions.


Mahler - Totenfeier

Totenfeier is a series of vignettes describing a hero’s life ‘passing before his eyes’: his joys, his strifes, his passions, his trials. Exploring the meaning of life, the work is written to sound expansive and exaggerated, yet deeply sincere. Drama and beauty abound.
