Conductor Giordano Bellincampi
Piano Jean-Efflam Bavouzet
Eve de Castro-Robinson New work
Beethoven Piano Concerto No.5, ‘Emperor’
Tchaikovsky Symphony No.5
Giordano Bellincampi opens the 2018 season with a new piece by the distinguished Auckland composer Eve de Castro-Robinson, a former Composer-in-Residence with the APO.
Then a highlight of the season, the absolutely sensational French pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet. For his much-anticipated return to Auckland, he’s playing Beethoven’s grandest and most monumental concerto.
Tchaikovsky’s tempestuous Fifth Symphony is an equally tremendous work. With emotion at its most raw and music at its most passionate, it’s the perfect start to a year of concert-going.
Pre-concert Talk by Ronan Tighe at 7:15 pm in the concert chamber.
