Tasmania’s

Orchestra Welcomes

You T

he Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra’s 2022 concert brochure is coming to you in two parts – concerts in the first half of the year are in this brochure and we’ll release our August to December concerts once the new year is underway. We’re taking this approach so that we can present you with a concert season that we’re confident of delivering – Covid contingencies and all.

We continue to perform in our home venue of Federation Concert Hall in Hobart and are thrilled to be returning to main-stage concerts in Launceston with three performances in Albert Hall. Immerse yourself in the tantalising concerts on offer and book your tickets now! Tasmania’s orchestra welcomes you. Connect with us.

The gorgeous photo on our cover offers a glimpse of what’s inside – we’re shining a light on the wealth of talent in the orchestra and celebrating the artistry and expertise of musicians across a range of instruments.

Brass in St David’s B

L-R: Mark Bain, Tim Jones & Mitch Nissen

rass music and soaring church interiors are made for each other; a match made in heaven, you might say. Brass in St David’s goes one better – St David’s Cathedral in Hobart being no ordinary church interior but an imposing stone and timber edifice and a building of significant heritage value.

Friday 18 February 7.30pm St David’s Cathedral, Hobart Fabian Russell conductor Brass and Percussion of the TSO

Brass and Percussion musicians from the TSO step into this lofty and reverberant space for a variety-filled concert. Fabian Russell, who conducted a Brass in St David’s concert to great acclaim in 2019, returns for this concert. Sit back and contemplate the grandeur of the Gothic revival architecture as music from different periods and in different styles envelopes you in all its splendour.

Unlock your imagination and be borne aloft by the full might of the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra with the always entertaining Guy Noble at the helm.

Bruch

Violin

Concerto T

asmania’s star violinist, Emma McGrath, TSO Concertmaster, returns as soloist in Federation Concert Hall with Bruch’s Violin Concerto No 1 – an exhilarating work she first performed with the London Philharmonic Orchestra at the age of only 14. As you would expect, Emma knows this violin showpiece backwards and is attuned to its beauties, challenges and nuances. Beyond Emma’s sensational headline act, you’ll also hear the world première of Hi-Vis by the phenomenally talented Holly Harrison, Composer in Residence with the orchestra. The concert comes to a close with Dvořák’s Eighth Symphony – a rich composition that took Dvořák a leisurely two weeks to craft in the great outdoors of Vysoká, an idyllic rural region south of Prague.

ANDREW SEYMOUR


Weber Clarinet Concerto

W

hether he’s performing within the body of the orchestra or standing out the front as soloist, Andrew Seymour, TSO Principal Clarinet, produces a rich, resonant and beautifully modulated sound, as you’ll hear when he appears as soloist in the Clarinet Concerto No 1 by Carl Maria von Weber. This dazzling concerto was written with the technical and lyrical powers of the instrument at the forefront of the composer’s mind. The Overture to A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Felix Mendelssohn is a minor miracle – especially given that Mendelssohn was aged only 17 when he wrote it – while Mozart’s Symphony No 40 is among the greatest of 18th-century symphonies and the product of a composer at the height of his powers.

Beethoven’s

Ninth O

ur Beethoven cycle with Chief Conductor Eivind Aadland, which began in 2021, comes to a climactic close with Beethoven’s colossal Symphony No 9. This is the symphony that Beethoven wrote but couldn’t hear. It is the symphony that features a vast chorus and a quartet of vocal soloists who raise their voices in an ‘Ode to Joy’. This is the symphony that yielded five standing ovations at its première in 1824 – Beethoven observing the scenes of jubilation, with hats and hands thrown high in the air.

Saturday 02 April 7.30pm Federation Concert Hall, Hobart Eivind Aadland conductor Samantha Clarke soprano Anna Dowsley mezzo-soprano Samuel Sakker tenor Samuel Dundas bass TSO Chorus LEDGER Signal Lost BEETHOVEN Symphony No 9 in D minor, Op 125

GREG STEPHENS


Strauss Horn

Concerto

T

he French horn is known for its warm and honeyed tone along with its technical challenges. Richard Strauss knew these qualities well; his dad, Franz, was a horn virtuoso. Greg Stephens, TSO Principal First Horn, appears as soloist in Strauss’ Second Horn Concerto, a beautifully autumnal work that celebrates the colour and character of this literally breathtaking instrument. Mozart – Strauss’s favourite composer and a figure whose voice is reflected in the Horn Concerto – opens the concert with his commanding ‘Paris’ Symphony; while the concert finishes with the enchanting suite from Hänsel und Gretel, which was conducted by Strauss at its world première in 1893. And on the subject of premières, the concert includes a world first by Australian composer Melody Eötvös, an alumna of the TSO’s awardwinning training programs.

Elgar Cello

Concerto

P

assionate, expressive and elegiac, Elgar’s Cello Concerto, which was written in the aftermath of World War I, has moved and touched audiences for over a century. Generations of frontrank cellists have stepped up to the challenge of bringing Elgar’s music to life. In this concert, hear the remarkably talented Jonathan Békés, TSO Principal Cello, rise to that challenge. Also on the program, Schubert’s youthful Symphony No 3 and Beethoven’s Overture to August von Kotzebue’s stage play King Stephen, which Beethoven composed around the same time as his Seventh Symphony. Conducting this varied program is Marko Letonja, former Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and currently the orchestra’s Conductor Laureate.

Dinner suits and ballgowns whirl to the one-two-three lilt of a Strauss waltz, while up above a glistening crystal chandelier casts a glorious, old-world glow. Welcome to the half-real, halfmythical realm of 19th-century Vienna. Join Marko Letonja, TSO Conductor Laureate, for a night of luxurious waltzes, zesty polkas and classics from the family Strauss. Soprano Lorina Gore brings an extra touch of glamour as she performs sparkling numbers from the golden age of Viennese operetta.

Gavrylyuk Plays

Schumann F

elix Mendelssohn was a young man when he travelled through misty, romantic Scotland. He sailed across crashing seas and ventured into mysterious caves – formative experiences that inspired his concert overture, The Hebrides. Meanwhile, his contemporary Robert Schumann was putting his heart and soul into composing a piano concerto, finally producing one of the great concertos of the age with his robust and brilliant Piano Concerto in A minor. Hear it performed by the formidable Alexander Gavrylyuk. The remainder of the concert is devoted to a pair of earlier contemporaries and friends, Haydn and Mozart. Hear how each composer embraced fashionable ‘Turkish’ idioms, with Mozart’s jingle-jangle Overture to The Abduction to the Seraglio – by far Mozart’s most popular opera during his lifetime – and Haydn’s rousing Symphony No 100, ‘Military’.

Tomasi Trombone Concerto F

rench composer Henri Tomasi is not exactly a household name but he’s revered by brass musicians for his expertly written music for solo and ensemble brass, including his Trombone Concerto of 1956, which pays homage to various idioms, including jazz and blues. Stepping into the spotlight as soloist is David Robins, TSO Principal Trombone, who describes the concerto as ‘an exciting musical journey in which the power, warmth, lyricism and playfulness of the instrument are all on show.’

Friday 15 July 7.30pm Federation Concert Hall, Hobart Elena Schwarz conductor David Robins trombone RESPIGHI Trittico Botticelliano TOMASI Trombone Concerto IVES Central Park in the Dark COPLAND Appalachian Spring, Suite

Respighi’s picturesque Trittico Botticelliano opens the concert, while the second half features music by two American legends: Charles Ives and Aaron Copland. Central Park in the Dark presents a tapestry of sounds from the ‘green heart’ of New York City while the Suite from Appalachian Spring, one of Copland’s best-loved ballet scores, is tender, tuneful and transcendent.

CHAMBER MUSIC AT WOOLMERS

Beethoven and

Britten T

he Tasmanian String Quartet returns to historic Woolmers Estate with two key chamber works. Headlining the concert is Beethoven’s String Quartet Op 135, which is not only his final string quartet, but his final completed work in any medium. Was Beethoven solemn and serious at the end of his life? Not at all judging from this upbeat and jovial work. That said, the beautiful slow movement mines a more contemplative vein. Britten’s String Quartet No 2 dates from a time in the composer’s life when his career was just taking off – it was premièred in 1945, a matter of months after his careerbreakthrough opera, Peter Grimes. The quartet was written in honour of 17th-century composer Henry Purcell and premièred precisely 250 years to the day since Purcell died. Its monumental finale is a grand set of variations, a favourite form of Purcell’s (and of late-period Beethoven, for that matter).

Saturday 14 May 11am and 2.30pm Woolmers Estate, Longford Tasmanian String Quartet Emma McGrath violin Jennifer Owen violin Douglas Coghill viola Jonathan Békés cello BEETHOVEN String Quartet No 16 in F, Op 135 BRITTEN String Quartet No 2 in C, Op 36

The Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra acknowledges the traditional owners and continuing custodians of lutruwita/Tasmania. We pay respect to the Aboriginal community today, and to its Elders past and present. We recognise a history of truth, which acknowledges the impacts of colonisation upon Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and stand for a future that profoundly respects their stories, culture, language and history.
