Ewan Clark conducts the orchestra in a programme featuring NZSO Principal Trombone, David Bremner.
- Lilburn - Suite for Orchestra
- Tomasi - Trombone Concerto
- Sibelius - Symphony No 2
Ewan writes: "This concert brings together a well-known favourite, Sibelius’s Second Symphony (1901–2), with two wonderful rarities: Henri Tomasi’s Concerto pour trombone et orchestra (1956) and Douglas Lilburn’s Suite for Orchestra (1955). All three are carefully structured works of “absolute music”, yet all three are picturesque and full of vivid evocations, due in no small part to the influence of jazz (in the Tomasi) and folk music (in the Lilburn and especially the Sibelius). There are therefore subtle synergies between these works that allow them to complement one another, despite their varying geographical and historical origins."
