Conductor Christoph Altstaedt
Violin Amalia Hall

Brahms Variations on a Theme by Haydn
Haydn Violin Concerto No.1
Mahler (arr. Britten) What the Wild Flowers Tell Me
Schubert Symphony No.6 ‘Little C major’

Four genial, al fresco works from great Viennese masters. Brahms’ Variations is such a thoroughly satisfying piece of music that it’s a mere curiosity that its theme is, in fact, almost certainly not by Haydn.

Haydn does however make a genuine appearance, courtesy of one of the Auckland Philharmonia’s great friends, Amalia Hall, playing his rarely heard concerto.

Another rarity: Britten’s ingenious arrangement of a movement from Mahler’s enormous Third Symphony for a somewhat smaller band, every note testament to the younger man’s love for Mahler’s music. Schubert’s lovely symphony is a delicious sorbet to finish off.
