Take a bow for concert
the Flaxen Hair from the French Impressionist era was as charming as ever and was followed by quirky and happy selections from New Zealander David Farquar’s Ring Round the Moon.
The YPT ended their part of the concertwith music from another Russian composer; Tchaikovsky’s 4th movement from the Little Russian Symphony.
To end the first half of the concert the BOP Symphonia performed Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony, capturing the serenity of the symphony with its lovely melody interspersedwith dark foreboding passages.
The second half of the concert saw both orchestras on stage. The audience was given a wonderfully uplifting and mindblowing experience ofMahler’s great finale to his 3rd symphony and then to finish the programme some rollicking music from Pirates of the Caribbean.
Take a bow Justus Rozemond, Youth Philharmonic Tauranga and Bay of Plenty Symphonia; you did yourselves proud.
