The popular NZSO Soloists series returns showcasing the world-class musicianship of individual players in select ensembles.
Arvo Pärt’s Fratres is a work of austere beauty and stark minimalism, it describes a new tonal landscape that will haunt modern audiences. In a stunning contrast, Rodion Shchedrin’s Carmen Suite is guaranteed to shock and entertain. Composed for an orchestra with an array of percussion instruments, this fresh interpretation breathes new life into Bizet’s much-loved music, rediscovering a sense of surprise, suspense and danger in Carmen’s well known songs.
