Conductor Giordano Bellincampi
Piano Frank Dupree

John Rimmer Vulcan
Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1
R. Strauss Der Rosenkavalier: Suite
R. Strauss Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche

Music Director Giordano Bellincampi gets the season off to an explosive start! John Rimmer’s fanfare, an APO Millennium commission, depicts the powerful and destructive geological forces that created New Zealand.

Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto is also volcanic (if less literally) and demands a bravura performance from German Wunderkind Frank Dupree.

Then two delicious favourites from Richard Strauss. The highlights from his opera Der Rosenkavalier: the awakening of young love, the relinquishing of old love and irresistible waltzes. And one of his most ebullient creations, the tale of the cheeky rogue Till Eulenspiegel: his gleefully wicked exploits – and his comeuppance.
