Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1

R. Strauss Der Rosenkavalier: Suite

R. Strauss Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche

 

The New Zealand Herald Premier Series gets off to an explosive start with music director Giordano Bellincampi conducting John Rimmer’s Vulcan, an Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra Millennium commission, depicting the powerful and destructive geological forces that created New Zealand.

Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto is also volcanic (if less literally) and demands a bravura performance from German wunderkind Frank Dupree.

The night will finish with two delicious favourites from Richard Strauss. The highlights from his opera Der Rosenkavalier: the awakening of young love, the relinquishing of old love and irresistible waltzes. And one of his most ebullient creations, the tale of the cheeky rogue Till Eulenspiegel, with his gleefully wicked exploits – and his comeuppance.
