Conductor: Jose Aparicio
Soloist: Rolf Gjelsten of the NZ String Quartet joins the Hawke's Bay Orchestra and visiting instrumentalists in a programme that includes Beethoven's Symphony No 8 in F major, Op 93; Saint-Saens' Cello Concerto No 1 in A Minor Op 33; and Beethoven's Symphony No 4 in B Flat Major Op 60.

The music of Beethoven is presented in its most positive mood. While overshadowed by their predecessors and subsequent works (Symphonies 3. 5. 7. 9) both symphonies in this programme radiate optimism and classical simplicity. This truly exhilarating evening includes Saint-Saens' passionate cello concerto played by the inspiring Rolf Gjelsten of the NZ String Quartet.

Further information is available in the Choir's annual booklet (free) available at libraries, Municipal Theatre Napier, Napier Information Centre, Beattie and Forbes Napier and Take Note Havelock North bookshops.
