The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra performs two world-class concerts for the Festival of Colour

Richard Strauss Serenade for Winds in Eb, Op. 7
Wagner Siegfried Idyll, WWV 103
W.A. Mozart Symphony No. 41 in C, K. 551 'Jupiter'

Music Director Edo de Waart conducts an evening of great music, opening with Strauss’ 'Serenade for Winds', composed when he was only 17 years old. Richard Wagner’s astonishingly beautiful symphonic poem 'Siegfried Idyll' was written as a surprise birthday present for his beloved wife Cosima.

Mozart’s Symphony No. 41, 'Jupiter', was his last symphony and is considered by many to be one of the greatest symphonies ever composed.

Sunday 7 April 7pm
Lake Wanaka Centre

Handel Water Music, HWV 348-350.

NZSO Concertmaster Vesa-Matti Leppänen leads the chamber orchestra in one of the great masterpieces of the Baroque Period.

King George I requested that Handel write a piece of music to be performed on a barge on the Thames. As the river filled with boats and ships, Handel and his orchestra celebrated the beauty of the river and the reign of Handel’s friend.
