Lilburn - Symphony No. 3
Mahler - Songs of a Wayfarer
Stravinsky - Firebird

Pietari Inkinen - conductor
Sasha Cooke - mezzo-soprano

Mahler’s exquisitely evocative song-cycle describes the despair of unrequited love, Douglas Lilburn’s Symphony No. 3 is a jagged, lyrical and mesmerising landscape, infused with a relentless energy that comes alive with the precise and detailed performance of an orchestra at the height of its powers.

Followed by Stravinsky’s glittering ballet music, The Firebird, first performed by Diaghilev’s infamous Ballets Russes. In his setting of the Russian fairy tale, Stravinsky’s music is a fiery concoction of folk melodies, iridescent colours and impulsive rhythms that heave and leap from the orchestra, blazing in the light of the Firebird’s triumph.
