North & South - - Choice -

The votes are in – so which clas­si­cal works made the top 10 for this year’s Set­tling the Score? Peren­nial favourites, such as Beethoven’s Fifth and Ninth sym­phonies, Holst’s The Plan­ets suite or El­gar’s Cello Con­certo? Will Vaughan Wil­liams’ The Lark As­cend­ing stay in the Top 50, as it has ev­ery year (mostly ap­pear­ing in the Top 10) since Set­tling the Score be­gan in 2000? On Novem­ber 10, tune in to RNZ Con­cert or head to the Auck­land Town Hall for the live con­cert per­formed by the Auck­land Phil­har­mo­nia Or­ches­tra. This year, the au­di­ence also gets to de­ter­mine the ticket price: pay what­ever you think the show was worth.

Mean­while, ac­claimed tenor Si­mon O’neill teams up with NZ Trio for Flare, the fi­nal in their Loft Series, which in­cludes a new com­mis­sion from Kiwi com­poser Stephen Matthews (The Turner Cen­tre, Kerik­eri, Novem­ber 10; Q Theatre Loft, Auck­land, Novem­ber 13 and 15; The Great Hall, Christchurch, Novem­ber 17).
