How else can we begin our exploration of “final” works other than with the symphony that cast its shadow over an entire century?

Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony is without question one of the monuments of the Western canon and the history of music is impossible to consider without acknowledging its genius, sublimity and influence.

Symphony No. 9, Op. 125
Composed 1822–1824

Jenny Wollerman Soprano
Elisabeth Harris Alto
Henry Choo Tenor
Warwick Fyfe Bass

Joseph Haydn (1732–1809)
Cello Concerto In C Major, Hob. Viib-1

Rustem Khamidullin Cello
Grand Prize Winner Gisborne International Music Competition 2014

Marc Taddei: Conductor

Jenny Wollerman is the thinking musician’s soprano – an artist of exquisite style and taste. We are delighted to introduce to our audiences young and vibrant mezzo soprano, Elisabeth Harris. We first worked with Henry Choo during our 2014 performance of Carmina Burana. Who could forget his performance there of the roasting swan? This was as fine as we have heard anywhere. We are particularly excited to work with Warwick Fyfe, one of Australia’s nest baritones and the winner of a prestigious Helpmann Award.

We pair this with a work by Beethoven’s teacher and the father of the symphony, featuring the 2014 winner of New Zealand’s longest running music competition.
