Gustav Mahler’s tantalising Seventh Symphony is as intriguing as it is intoxicating. This complex symphony continues to fascinate and beguile musicians and audiences. Conjuring fantastical night visions, Mahler’s music is animated by evocative mandolins, spectral waltzes and a strangely triumphant finale that will astound your senses and warm your spirit.
Such a magical score finds its perfect companion in Johann Sebastian Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins. This concert provides a rare opportunity to see NZSO Music Director, Pietari Inkinen, take on the role of violin soloist. Highlighting the impressive breadth of this maestro’s extraordinary talents, he will perform alongside the hugely gifted NZSO Concertmaster Vesa-Matti Leppänen.
Experience the wonder of Bach as our two Finnish stars deftly weave overlapping phrases of exquisite counterpoint, unveiling the beauty and emotion of Bach’s sublime concerto.
