Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra - "Fantasy"

British violinist Anthony Marwood joins the APO to play the New Zealand premiere of Thomas Adès's Violin Concerto, 'Concentric Paths' - a work written especially for him.

Also in this concert - the first of the Philharmonia's Premier Series in 2019 - the orchestra opens with Wagner's rousing and ingenious Overture to his opera Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, and closes with Berlioz's depiction of a drug-fuelled nightmare, the Symphonie Fantastique.
