Conductor Tadaaki Otaka
Horn Stefan Dohr

Beethoven The Creatures of Prometheus: Overture
R. Strauss Horn Concerto No.1
Rachmaninov Symphony No.2

Stefan Dohr, the Principal Horn of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, plays a concerto inspired by another star horn player. But even the renowned horn virtuoso Franz Strauss struggled with the technical difficulties of this effervescent work by his eighteen-year-old son.

A belief close to Strauss’ heart was the civilising power of art and it was also close to Beethoven’s: it was the subject of his ballet The Creatures of Prometheus, whose energetic overture depicts the raw excitement of artistic creation. To finish, we hear Rachmaninov’s warm-hearted, sprawling symphony, with its inexhaustible profusion of glorious Romantic melody.

FREE ORGAN RECITAL

The Auckland Town Hall Organ Trust, in association with the APO, presents a 30-minute recital at 6pm prior to each Bayleys Great Classics concert in Auckland Town Hall. Each recital features a different organist playing classics from the organ repertoire.
