Conductor Johannes Fritzsch
Piano Michael Houstoun

- Elgar Serenade for Strings
- Lyell Cresswell Piano Concerto No.2 (world premiere)
- Prokofiev Symphony No.5

One of New Zealand’s favourite pianists, Michael Houstoun, returns to perform the premiere of Lyell Creswell’s new piano concerto. Consisting of a number of short movements that make up a full-length concerto, each movement will be based on a different chorale by J.S. Bach.

Prokofiev said his Fifth Symphony was ‘a work glorifying the human spirit’ and it covers epic territory: broad, optimistic music, the spiky sarcasm that only Prokofiev could write and a deeply felt love song in all but name.

The perfect beginning for an evening of music (and the perfect end to your Thursday): Elgar’s Serenade, one of its composer’s sunniest, most lighthearted works.
