Leonard Bernstein;s 'Chichester Psalms' - impassioned, poignant and effervescent in turn - for soprano, choir and orchestra, opens this scintillating concert. Changing moods continue in Gareth Farr's new Triple Concerto with its virtuosic mix of luricism, fire and a distinct Aotearoa sound performed with the New Zealand Trio as soloists.
Excitement peaks in Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade, fantastic tales of the Arabian Nights, offering blazing sweeps of orchestral colour, sensual melodies, and Oriental drama.
