Gustav Holst (1874–1934)

Orpheus Choir of Wellington

Marc Taddei Conductor

We are exhilarated that creativity can remain a profound force and focus of inspiration throughout life.

We leave our theme behind for our final programme and in its place we offer a multi-media extravaganza with one of the grandest and most popular works of the entire orchestra repertoire – Gustav Holst’s The Planets! We partner this huge work with projected images from the Space Place and welcome back (for the third time in the season) the (very) hard working Orpheus Choir of Wellington.

The concert begins with two vital premieres by three (!) of our Composers-in-Residence. First, we are thrilled to present Claire Cowan’s Violin Concerto with noted New Zealand violin virtuoso, Amalia Hall as soloist.

Following this, David Long is joined by a video presentation by David Downes in a work that straddles both classical art music and popular idioms.
