JS Bach: Concerto for Violin and Oboe
Respighi: The Birds
JS Bach: Concerto for Oboe D’Amore
Mozart: Symphony No. 41, Jupiter

JS Bach’s music incorporates musical inventiveness, drama, and exquisite beauty – all of which are evident in these two concerti. The soloist is Robert Orr, NZSO’s Principal Oboeist.

Tasmanian-based conductor Daniel Kossov was born in Russia, emigrated to Israel, and graduated from the Curtis Institute and London’s Guildhall School. At the age of 23, he became Australia’s youngest ever concertmaster in Perth. He currently conducts in Australia, Israel, Russia and Europe. Appropriately, he will be directing the double Bach concerto from the violin.

In Respighi’s The Birds, this 20th century composer freely re-works four Baroque keyboard pieces while depicting of characteristics of four different birds.

Rounding off the concert is Mozart’s Jupiter Symphony, which finishes with one of the most extraordinary symphonic movements ever written. Mozart presents and then interweaves no less than five musical themes.
