  • Conductor Giordano Bellincampi
  • Violin Ning Feng
  • Salina Fisher New work
  • Beethoven Violin Concerto
  • Nielsen Symphony No.5

The extraordinarily talented young New Zealand violinist and composer, Salina Fisher, was the youngest ever winner of The SOUNZ Contemporary Award, and she’s won it again since. We are eagerly waiting to hear what she’s got in store for us in her new piece.

APO favourite Ning Feng returns with Beethoven’s titanic concerto, one of the summits of the violinist’s repertoire.

Giordano Bellincampi continues his survey of his compatriot Carl Nielsen’s music with this remarkable symphony.

The then-recent First World War is echoed in staggeringly violent music, with a rogue snare drum doing its best to upend the orchestra.


New Zealand Herald Premier Series: Zarathustra

One of Mozart’s sunniest symphonies bounces off Haydn’s cheerful concerto, played by the outstanding Dutch cellist Harriet Krijgh.

New Zealand Herald Premier Series: Reveries

The distinguished French conductor Bertrand de Billy makes his début with the APO.

New Zealand Herald Premier Series: Boléro

Meditative, timeless, unutterably beautiful, Pärt’s Fratres is something that seems to exist outside of this world.

More than 1000 secondary school students from across Auckland will compete in Auckland Council's Stand Up Stand Out youth music and dance competition.
