Programme: BODY - Little Elegies SCULTHORPE - Memento Mori GORECKI - Symphony No. 3 (Symphony of Sorrowful Songs)
HAMISH McKEICH conductor SARA MACLIVER soprano
This concert not only marks the commemoration of Anzac but also the centenary of World War I with New Zealander Jack Body’s Little Elegies, Australian Peter Sculthorpe’s Memento Mori and Polish Henryk Górecki’s Symphony of Sorrowful Songs. Each composition is influenced by acts of human violence throughout history. Each piece is also a moving tribute to our humanity. Conducting the orchestra is New Zealander Hamish McKeich, whose readings of modern works are inspired, while the sound of radiant Australian soprano Sara Macliver shimmers with hope. This will be a special concert indeed, part of the WW100 commemorations.
