MSO Presents 'Rachmaninov 2' 7.30pm Sat 9 March, Due Drop Events Centre, Manukau

Shelley Robertson from Manukau Symphony Orchestra

Mendelssohn Hebrides Overture 'The Fingal's Cave'
Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No.2
Mozart Symphony No.41 'Jupiter'

Uwe Grodd Conductor
Shan Liu Piano

6.45pm FREE Pre-show talk 'Mozart's Jupiter' by Dr Sam Girling, BNZ Theatre Foyer, 9 March, Due Drop Events Centre, Manukau

Embark on a musical journey to the rugged Scottish coast as Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture transports you to the mystical Fingal’s Cave. Feel the power of nature’s majesty and the exhilarating waves of this composition.

Prepare to be swept off your feet by Rachmaninov’s breathtaking Piano Concerto No 2. This is one of the most passionate and beloved concertos in the repertoire, its lyricism and virtuosity charting a trajectory from darkness through idyll to dazzling triumph. We welcome back the young superstar Shan Liu as soloist who left us all spellbound and received a standing ovation after his performance in last year’s Family Concert.

Tchaikovsky declared that Mozart was ‘full of divine beauty’ and Schubert took wonder at the ‘countless images of a brighter and better world’ that Mozart was able to conjure up through his music. Mozart’s ‘Jupiter’ Symphony, the crowning jewel of his symphonic repertoire, promises a grand finale to an unforgettable evening.

Say goodbye to tyre waste


About 40% of the 6.5 million tyres Kiwis use every year are recycled, repurposed, or used as tyre-derived fuel. But the rest end up in landfills, stockpiled or dumped.

The good news is now there’s an easy solution to all that tyre waste. It’s called Tyrewise and is New Zealand’s first national tyre recycling scheme.

Tyrewise ensures that tyres in Aotearoa New Zealand are recycled or repurposed properly, saving millions from going to the landfill.
