Fantasy

The New Zealand Herald Premier Series

Conductor Giordano Bellincampi
Violin Anthony Marwood

Wagner Die Meistersinger: Overture
Thomas Adès Violin Concerto ‘Concentric Paths’
Berlioz Symphonie fantastique

Berlioz composed this spectacular symphony to recover from a failed love affair. He evidently found it therapeutic to write music depicting his own beheading and to conclude the piece with his beloved appearing as the bride of the Devil. Unsurprisingly, it is music which is bizarre, deliriously romantic, and irresistibly exciting.

Like Berlioz, the British composer Thomas Adès has a wild, far-ranging imagination and an extraordinary ear. His coolly dazzling concerto was written for our soloist, the marvelous violinist Anthony Marwood.

Wagner kicks off the season with the grand yet warm overture to his only comedic opera.
