trumpetThe New Zealand Symphony Orchestra venture into Bold Worlds with a fresh concerto from Australian composer Brett Dean, played by in-demand Swedish trumpet virtuoso Håkan Hardenberger.

The brassy theme continues with Janacek's Sinfonietta inspired by a military band and finally with a trumpet solo within Ravel's orchestration of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition.

We also hear a guest conductor making his debut with the NZSO, the current Director of Spain's Orquesta Sinfonica de Galicia, the Russian born Dmitri Slobodeniouk.
