Join us in 2022, as we celebrate our 75th anniversary and look forward to a golden future.


Tēnā koutou katoa One of the most enjoyable, but often challenging, tasks for any professional orchestra is planning each season. As the NZSO celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2022, we like to think we are very experienced at putting together all the music and activities that make every season something special. Since the pandemic, we’ve had to think smarter and work harder as we assemble a new season, while still delivering the best music experiences to all New Zealanders. We have a fantastic array of concerts and events for our 75th year which everyone will enjoy, from long-time fans to the many people we reach for the first time. In 2022 we present 75 concerts in 18 centres across Aotearoa New Zealand, while also reaching audiences across the world online. The season opens with the ground-breaking Hihī – a song of place. This Te Tairāwhiti Arts Festival production is a collaboration with Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts and will be premiered at Gisborne’s Waihīrere Domain before being performed as a symphonic work in Wellington. On 06 March – 75 years to the day after our first performance, we celebrate our 75th anniversary with Jubilee, a special free concert featuring favourites from the Orchestra and works selected by the public. The celebrations continue throughout the year wherever we play, with Aotearoa New Zealand composers a key focus. The 2022 Season features works by Dorothy Buchanan, Claire Cowan, David Farquhar, Douglas Lilburn, David Mason, Jenny McCloud, John Psathas, Kodi Rasmussen, John Ritchie, Kirsten Strom, Tabea Squire, Anthony Watson and Dame Gillian Whitehead. Other exciting partnerships and collaborations in 2022 see us join forces with Lexus Song Quest, CubaDupa, the National Band of New Zealand and the Royal New Zealand Ballet. The NZSO is also delighted to continue reaching communities and new audiences through Setting Up Camp and Immerse 2022, which includes our popular Open Doors events. When we first played in 1947, Deputy Prime Minister Walter Nash wished us “every possible success … in the great work that you’re going to do on behalf of this little dominion.” We’re very proud of what we’ve brought to Aotearoa New Zealand in our first 75 years. As an orchestra for the 21st century, with your support, we’ll continue to do great work for decades to come. Ngā manaakitanga

Peter Biggs CNZM Te Kaihautū o Te Tira Pūoro o Aotearoa NZSO Chief Executive


Tēnā koutou katoa, Talofa Lava, Mālo e lelei, Greetings It is always exciting to experience the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra Te Tira Pūoro o Aotearoa. Whether we enjoy our national orchestra in concert halls, schools, out in the community, or via streaming online, the NZSO continues to delight and surprise New Zealanders of all ages and cultures. The 2022 Season is especially significant as it marks the Orchestra’s 75th anniversary. This will be a welldeserved celebration of a cultural taonga and all the joy and inspiration it has brought to the people of Aotearoa New Zealand over 75 years. I am delighted that the 2022 Season continues to embrace the diversity and vibrancy of Aotearoa through the NZSO’s concert, education and community programmes. While looking back over 75 years, the NZSO is also focussed on how it will evolve in the coming decades for the benefit of all New Zealanders. There are many highlights in the 2022 Season. Not least is Setting Up Camp, in which the NZSO spends several days in different towns or cities, offering a wide variety of evening and daytime events. This has been an enormous success since its inception in 2020, and for many people Setting Up Camp has been their first experience of the NZSO. The large number of New Zealand artists and composers in the 2022 Season is also heartening – from Principal Conductor-in-Residence Hamish McKeich, conductor Gemma New, violinist Amalia Hall and soprano Madeleine Pierard, to exciting collaborations across music genres with Whirimako Black, Shayne Carter and Ria Hall. Many wonderful international artists will also contribute to the anniversary celebrations, including renowned American violinist Hilary Hahn, organist Joseph Nolan, pianist Gabriela Montero and conductors Alexander Shelley, Miguel Harth-Bedoya, Asher Fisch and James Judd. As always, I send my warmest wishes to the talented and dedicated musicians of the NZSO, as they bring us together throughout 2022 to enjoy symphonic music at its very best. Hon Carmel Sepuloni Minister for Arts, Culture & Heritage

A truly national orchestra Over 75 years we’ve performed in just about every corner of Aotearoa New Zealand, from Northland to Southland, and in doing so formed a special relationship with many communities.


Almost all of the world’s orchestras, including the most famous in Europe, Asia and the Americas, are not ‘national’ orchestras. Many take their name from the city in which they are based and where most of their performances take place. The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra’s 75-year journey couldn’t be more different. Not only is the NZSO one of just a handful of national orchestras left in the world, we’re one of an even smaller number which tours frequently. Over 75 years, we’ve performed in just about every corner of Aotearoa New Zealand, from Northland to Southland, and in doing so formed a special relationship with many communities. As the nation has changed, so too has our audience. This means that celebrating our 75th birthday is as much a celebration of the generations of New Zealanders who have come to see us play and support us. On behalf of this little dominion Originally known as the National Symphony Orchestra, we performed for the first time on 06 March 1947 in Wellington Town Hall. Conductor Andersen Tyrer led 65 musicians before an audience of enthusiastic music lovers which included Prime Minister Peter Fraser, members of Cabinet and the diplomatic corps.

“The audience was tremendously enthusiastic. The walls of the Wellington Town Hall visibly trembled.”

The premiere was a much-anticipated event, and for those who couldn’t buy a ticket, there was a live radio broadcast. Ahead of the performance, Deputy Prime Minister Walter Nash spoke to the Orchestra – a mix of professional and amateur musicians who’d come together five months earlier – wishing them “every possible success … in the great work that you’re going to do on behalf of this little dominion.” He also set a challenge to the Orchestra which resonates to this day. Perform music to an international standard, he said, so as to “give a chance to those conductors that do come later to see what New Zealand can produce.” At almost three hours, our debut concert was long by today’s standards. A review by respected historian JC Beaglehole in the New Zealand Listener, declared: “The audience was tremendously enthusiastic. The walls of the Wellington Town Hall visibly trembled.”

The NZSO’s first performance, Wellington Town Hall, 06 Mar, 1947.

In the audience was 12-year-old Rod Biss. “I discovered the wonder of orchestral sound, a thrill that has never left me. In 1956 I headed to London for more study and eventually to work in music publishing. I returned to New Zealand in 1974 and the NZSO impressed me. It was absolutely up there with the orchestras I had been hearing on the other side of the world.” 5


“From then the NZSO became part of my staple musical diet, at first just as an enthusiast and then as a critic for the Sunday Star-Times and the New Zealand Listener. There are so many memories that it is hard to know where to stop.” A few weeks after Wellington, the Orchestra performed in Christchurch, Dunedin and Auckland. When RNZ Concert reached out to its listeners five years ago for their recollections of the NZSO, Kathleen remembered seeing the new national orchestra play in Invercargill.

“It seemed that magic was in the air and when the magician himself brought his Firebird to life, the effects of the spell he cast have lasted with me to this day.”

“A Haydn symphony was performed. My mother and aunt told me this symphony had to do with hunting, so we listened for the sound of horns. Most exciting,” she said. “My mother, unusual for her, had put on lipstick and was wearing her prized rabbit fur coat.” For Rose, it was the Orchestra’s first performance in Timaru. “I was a small child … when I fell in love and was swept off my feet for the first time ... Everyone came out to greet the players and their minders when they arrived. “My heart was thundering with every musical note I heard. The Orchestra was enormous, and I saw instruments that I had no idea existed ... I was in love with them all.” John witnessed the great composer Igor Stravinsky conduct the NZSO in Auckland in 1961: “It seemed that magic was in the air and when the magician himself brought his Firebird to life, the effects of the spell he cast have lasted with me to this day.”

Maestro Igor Stravinsky conducting the NZSO, Wellington Town Hall, 18 Nov 1961.

On the world stage Not surprisingly, NZSO players have many memories and stories to tell. For Associate Concertmaster Donald Armstrong, who joined the NZSO in 1977, the Orchestra’s contribution to the New Zealand Festival of the Arts since its inception was a great innovation in the 1980s. Along with standalone concerts, the NZSO played in numerous productions, from accompanying legendary dancer Rudolf Nureyev in 1986, to operas, beginning with Wagner’s Die Meistersinger. “My personal highlight of all my years in the Orchestra was the inclusion in the 1988 Festival of the great Russian cellist Mstislav ‘Slava’ Rostropovich, accompanied by conductor Maxim Shostakovich, son of the great Dimitri Shostakovich. “After three days working with Maxim, saying to us, ‘Slava likes it like this, Slava likes it like that’, Slava arrived, 6

and one minute into the rehearsal, Slava went into a huge tirade in Russian, clearly berating Maxim on his conducting, to the great amusement of the players. “In the concert, the ebullient Maxim entered the stage, made a very quick bow and turned around, starting his father’s Festive Overture as he went. No one was ready, except for a brave trumpet player who emitted a tiny squeak. Later, the great Rostropovich entered and played the most incredible concerto, with a very slow Bach movement to follow. I have never felt such intimacy in a concert, as though all 2000 of us in the hall were sitting in a small room just with him. Pure magic.”

“I have never felt such intimacy in a concert, as though all 2000 of us in the hall were sitting in a small room just with him. Pure magic.”

Then there was the NZSO in Seville, Spain as part of Expo ’92. “There was a very special concert with NZSO Chief Conductor Franz-Paul Decker and Kiri Te Kanawa. The next day we played in the town square for the local music lovers. They loved it so much that they formed a guard of honour at the end and clapped each individual player off the stage,” says Donald. Assistant Sub-Principal Emeritus Viola Peter Barber, who joined the NZSO in 1979, also remembers Seville. “Maestro Decker was a formative visitor to the NZSO over many years. He could be terrifying to work with, but we gave wonderful performances of Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner, Haydn, Strauss, Mahler, and Wagner, particularly Das Rheingold.

NZSO Musicians in Virgen de los Reyes square, Seville, Spain, 1992.

“The many highlights included visiting Tūrangawaewae to play, and, at the powhiri, hearing conductor and soloist John Georgiadis sing the waiata in reply in Greek. Our Pops tours with conductor Ron Goodwin played to full houses everywhere. “I also enjoyed the wonderful concert halls in Wellington, Auckland, Christchurch, Dunedin, Hong Kong and Seville. New Zealand composer Gareth Farr’s music was another highlight, especially From the Depths Sound the Great Sea Gongs, with its riveting percussion solos, so reminiscent of Polynesian log drums.” Supporting Aotearoa when in need Other NZSO concerts have been especially poignant for listeners who shared their memories with RNZ Concert. “Shortly after the Air New Zealand Mt Erebus crash in 1979 I attended an NZSO concert in Wellington Town Hall,” said Ian. “As a requiem for those who had died, Michiyoshi Inoue conducted the Orchestra [playing] the Nimrod, Variation IX 8

The NZSO’s performance at Wiener Musikverein Vienna, 2010.

from Elgar’s Enigma Variations. Whenever I hear of the Erebus crash, or hear Elgar’s lovely dignified music, I always think of that moving occasion. Many in the audience knew victims of the disaster. It still brings me to tears.” Those special concerts have continued, including the NZSO performing in Christchurch after the devastating 2011 earthquake, and, with Orchestra Wellington, at a vigil in Wellington for the victims of the 2019 mosque attacks. Since the Covid-19 pandemic, the chance to enjoy the NZSO via streamed performances, including our musicians playing in their own homes, has also been a comfort to many people. This is just one of the many messages of support we received: “We really appreciate all the effort being made by the musicians to keep us – and themselves, I have no doubt – entertained. It really helps maintain the connection with the NZSO as a whole. Please extend our thanks to them all.” The next 75 years In 2022, audiences still want to hear the greatest works of the classical canon. However, today’s NZSO audience is much more diverse and has very different expectations to our audience 75 years ago. The 2021 world premiere of Ngā Hihi o Matariki by Gareth Farr, Mere Boynton and Ariana Tikao presented a uniquely Aotearoa New Zealand experience combining the might of a symphony orchestra with waiata and taonga pūoro. The 1996 ENZSO collaboration brought a whole new generation of music fans to the NZSO and we’ve continued to work with innovative New Zealand artists including Benee, The Phoenix Foundation, te reo Māori heavy metal band Alien Weaponry and many more. As we look to the future, the NZSO isn’t just an orchestra performing on stage, but a vibrant organisation working with people in communities across Aotearoa New Zealand to excite and engage them about music. Relaxed Concerts, the community and educational activities of Open Doors and Setting Up Camp, online streaming of concerts and collaborations with a variety of artists and organisations, are all a part of what the NZSO is now and into the future.

The NZSO performing Ngā Hihi O Matariki with Gemma New, Ariana Tikao and Mere Boynton, Auckland Town Hall, 02 July, 2021.

The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Te Tira Pūoro o Aotearoa, is New Zealand’s national orchestra and from Kerikeri to Invercargill, and across the world, we continue to present the finest works of the symphonic repertoire with many of the world’s – and Aotearoa New Zealand’s – leading soloists and conductors for many years to come.

Best known as the frontman of seminal Dunedin band Straitjacket Fits, Carter’s later work in Dimmer and in his awardwinning memoir show him to be an artist who just keeps growing. Since his younger days as a leading light of the Dunedin Sound in the 1980s, Carter has come to appreciate classical music and the universal similarities it shares with his own influences: “music is music no matter how it’s wrapped.” Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind collaboration that weaves Carter’s favourite moments from the ‘classical’ canon with reimagined orchestral versions of his songs from composer Tane Upjohn-Beatson. — Christchurch Sat, 08 Oct, 7.30pm Christchurch Town Hall Dunedin Sat, 15 Oct, 7.30pm Dunedin Town Hall

Learning and Connecting The NZSO gives people across the country the chance to learn about the Orchestra and discover music in new and exciting ways. We provide opportunities for schools, young performers and composers through a series of initiatives which support and inspire communities across Aotearoa New Zealand. For more information visit nzso.co.nz, or email education@nzso.co.nz

NZSO Onstage From first-time listeners and children to the most seasoned concertgoer, watching a symphony orchestra is an unforgettable experience. The NZSO presents Schools, Relaxed, Evening concerts, and Storytime across Aotearoa New Zealand and online. We also share the stage with our NZSO Young Artists Concert which showcases talented secondary school students as soloists with the Orchestra.

Nurturing Young Composers The next generation of great Kiwi composers will hone their skills with the NZSO Todd Corporation Young Composers Award, now in its 17th year, and NYO Composer in Residence. Young composers will work with top Aotearoa New Zealand composers to workshop their compositions and have them performed and recorded by the NZSO. 42


Engaging in the Community Every year, we proudly bring the Orchestra to communities across Aotearoa New Zealand. Setting Up Camp offers coaching, workshops and side-by-side experiences, giving musicians the chance to learn from NZSO players. Te Papa Whānau performances provide a fun concert experience while Music Room videos bring NZSO players into your home through your laptop or TV.

Growing Tomorrow’s Performers The NZSO has supported young NZ musicians for more than 74 years. The NZSO National Youth Orchestra brings together young musicians from across the country to perform with their peers. The Fellowship Conducting course and Mentoring programmes connect NZSO players with aspiring musicians, while NZSO Foundation Masterclasses connect international soloists and NZSO musicians with tertiary students.

Exciting Interest and Opening-up Access The NZSO is an orchestra for everyone. Our Open Rehearsals give people the chance to see how the Orchestra prepares for the performance, pre-concert activity gives you an insight into the music we perform, whilst the NZSO Open Doors initiative offers a range of exciting activities during Immerse Festivals around New Zealand.
