Great Hall, Auckland Town Hall

Classical music

Korngold’s spectacular score for that ultimate swashbuckler epic, the Errol Flynn movie The Sea Hawk, is a pure musical sugar hit. It will be some of the best fun that audiences will have all year.

Rachmaninov’s concerto, with its achingly tender slow movement, is a perennial favourite. The soloist must have fingers of steel and a poetic heart, and Lise de la Salle is just such a musician.

In the early months of his marriage, a jubilant Schumann sketched a symphony in just four days. ‘Spring’ is the perfect nickname for music of such exuberant, uncomplicated joy.
