TSO: Summer nights
- Date: Friday, 21 March 2014, 7:30pm
- Venue: Federation Concert Hall, Hobart — 1 Davey St, Hobart, TAS
Summer Nights – or, to give it its French title, Les nuits d’été – is among the most ravishing of all works for voice and orchestra. The six songs offer reflections on love, and the music overflows with gorgeous melodies, exquisite harmonies and luscious orchestral colours. Natascha Petrinsky, making her TSO debut, brings this masterpiece of French music to life. Schubert’s last symphony, the appropriately named Great, introduces a touch of Vienna. Schubert may have been in awe of Beethoven, his esteemed Viennese contemporary, but with the Ninth Symphony he proved that he too had a claim to greatness.
Featured non-Australian music: Berlioz, Schubert
