NZD33.83
Christchurch Symphony Orchestra - Symphonic Dances | Karla Norton Violin | Wellington

Benjamin Northey – Chief Conductor
Benjamin Baker – Violin

Jack Body – Fanfare for Bert
Jean Sibelius – Violin Concerto in D minor
Sergei Rachmaninov – Symphonic Dances

Opening the Lamb & Hayward Masterworks Series is Jack Body’s Fanfare for Bert, a humorous and catchy tribute to the easy listening master Bert Kaempfert.

Making his debut with the CSO to perform Sibelius’ brilliant Violin Concerto in D minor, New Zealand born Benjamin Baker has been described by the New York Times as a “fine violinist of virtuosity and refinement”.

Considered to be his greatest work for orchestra, Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninov’s Symphonic Dances is a sumptuous musical feast. Featuring echoes of musical chants from the Russian Orthodox and Catholic traditions, the work contrasts deeply expressive moments with outbursts of ecstatic exuberance.
