BEETHOVEN Romance No 1 in G, Op 40
KRAGGERUD Romantarctica*
MOZART Symphony No 29 in A, K201

Friday 12 May

Federation Concert Hall, nipaluna/Hobart

Strauss Horn Concerto

Old and new, north and south, strings and winds. Let your imagination run free when polar opposites come together. Beethoven sets the scene with his serenely beautiful Romance in G for solo violin and orchestra, after which Henning Kraggerud, director and violin soloist, presents his own work, Romantarctica. Like film music for a movie of your own devising, this picturesque work evokes the immense spaces of the world’s polar regions and the explorers of yesteryear who unlocked their mysteries. Joining Henning Kraggerud as co-soloist is Andrew Seymour, TSO Principal Clarinet. Having commenced with Beethoven, the concert comes to a close with Mozart – his fresh and invigorating Symphony No 29 in A, a breakthrough work that never ceases to astound and entertain.

*Co-commissioned by the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and the Arctic Philharmonic, the southernmost and northernmost professional orchestras on Earth.
