Legends of Leipzig

Legendary composers, legendary works, and an iconic New Zealand pianist surely a legend in her own right. Leipzig, a city entrenched in musical legend, is the resting place of the great Bach, and the location of the ‘Schumann-House’. Legends of Leipzig celebrates three illustrious composers with strong links to Leipzig. Mendelssohn’s The Hebrides Overture vividly paints the grandeur of Fingal’s Cave and the might of the Atlantic Ocean. Diedre Irons will perform Schumann’s sublime Concerto in A minor with her trademark poise, creativity and incredible attention to detail. Brahms’ masterly Serenade No. 1 completes this beautiful programme. Be entranced with evocations of a monumental musical stronghold.

Opus Orchestra, the professional orchestra of the Waikato Bay of Plenty, under the baton of Maestro Peter Walls, will be touring this wonderful programme in Hamilton, Tauranga and Rotorua.
