Addison Theatre, Baycourt

Description

Presented by: Bay of Plenty Symphonia

Bay of Plenty Symphonia presents a concert of powerful, well known works from classical masters. 
Verdi’s Overture Force of Destiny provides a dramatic opening to the concert.

Baycourt’s wonderful Steinway piano features next, as up-and-coming pianist Noelle Dannenbring continues the drama in the opening chords of Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No.2, leading into the passionate themes loved by so many.

This hugely popular work is one of the most celebrated of piano concertos, having been used in numerous movie soundtracks and pop songs. Noelle is an exciting young talent from Rotorua who has recently completed her Master’s in piano performance and has received numerous awards and accolades for her playing. 

The theme of destiny or fate is picked up again in Brahms’ 1st Symphony. In this magnificent work, listeners might recognise some musical similarities to Beethoven’s symphonies, a mark of Brahms’ admiration for his predecessor.
