LIVE VIDEO: NZSO Cadence - Grenfell & Mozart

From Music Alive, 7:30 pm on 21 October 2020

Conductor Gemma New leads the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra in a concert full of rhythm and dance.


Maria Grenfell: Clockwerk

With its fugal structure, Clockwerk introduces the different string sections of the Orchestra. The feeling of the work changes often before ending on a driving, accelerating end.

WA Mozart: Selection from Idomeneo: Ballet Music

Written when he was just 24, Idomeneo is considered one of Mozart’s first great operas. Dance was a large part of opera at the time and the selection of works performed from this opera shows the young genius’ talent as a composer and adaptability to the style.
