The Lake Phil will be conducted by its resident conductor, Christopher Bearman OAM in two concerts featuring two different soloists. The program for both has the very popular Symphony No 9 – From the New World- by Dvorak, and the Overture to the Italian Girl in Algiers- by Rossini. Saturday evening features Australia’s Champion of Champions trombonist Hannah Gibbons playing the colourful & excitingTromboneConcerto by Rimsky Korsakov.The Sunday matinee features noted Australian Opera singer Livia Brash singing the Sea Pictures of Edward Elgar.
Dvorak wrote this symphony as a commission from the New York Philharmonic & it was premiered on December 16th1893 at Carnegie Hall. There are many interesting influences in the work: negro melodies, native American music, and the pentatonic (five notes) of Scottish music. The melody from the second movement known as Goin’Home is original & later given the words by Dvorak’s student William Arms. This is such a favourite work that it is one of the most performed symphonies of all. Astronaut Neil Armstrong took a tape of it on his Apollo 11 mission to the moon!
Both concerts are selling on line at sticky tickets or at email@example.com
