Where: Auckland Town Hall, THE EDGE, 303 Queen St, Auckland
Restrictions: All Ages
Event listed by: NZSO
Mendelssohn - Hebrides Overture
Elgar - Cello Concerto
Schumann - Symphony No. 4
Andrew Grams - conductor
Lynn Harrell - cello
Revel in the astonishing talent of cello superstar Lynn Harrell as he returns to perform one of the cello’s most beloved works – Elgar’s elegiac Cello Concerto.
You can hear the great crashing of waves against desolate rocks and almost feel a salty sea breeze rush past as you are swept away by the soaring melodies in Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture.
Schumann’s Fourth Symphony is equally dramatic. Dark and brooding yet filled with moments of triumphant defiance and exquisite beauty, Schumann’s music is transporting, bringing to a close a concert that will uplift and inspire you and leave you wanting more.
‘Harrell’s playing was bold, imaginative, and surpassingly sensitive… fully human and rich in detail’ - Boston Globe
