Peter Scholes conductor
Auckland Chamber Orchestra

  • Einojuhani Rautavaara - Divertimento
  • Béla Bartók - Divertimento
  • Franz Schubert - Death and the Maiden D810 (arr. for string orchestra)

For our fouth 2017 concert we feature music for string orchestra. The works by Rautavaara and Bartok are both inspired by folk music. In Rautavaara's piece it is the rhythms and melodies of Finnish folk music. In the Bartók Divertimento the folk music of the Magyar traditions pervades the composition with exciting rhythms and rich sonorous string scoring.

The Schubert is of course originally a string quartet. We are performing it in a version for string orchestra. It is a drammatic work which works well for the larger group of players.
