Carnival - New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and Stephen De Pledge
About this event
The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra’s 2021 season on IDAGIO opens in carnival mode with acclaimed pianist Stephen De Pledge playing Ravel’s well-loved Piano Concerto in G, Piano Concerto No. 3 by NZ composer Anthony Ritchie, plus a selection of J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations, performed on fortepiano.
New Zealand pianist Stephen De Pledge is one of the most exciting and versatile musicians of his generation. His career launched after winning the Gold Medal from the Guildhall and the NFMS Young Concert Artists’ Award. He has since maintained a diverse and wide-ranging performing schedule as a soloist, chamber musician and song accompanist.
Joining Stephen and the orchestra in the Ravel concerto is conductor Hamish McKeich. New Zealander McKeich has forged an impressive conducting career on the world stage, and his partnership with the NZSO is internationally acclaimed, where he serves as Principal Conductor in Residence.
On the podium for Anthony Ritchie’s Piano Concerto No. 3 is Gemma New. Sought after for her insightful interpretations and dynamic occupation, New Zealand-born Gemma New is a leader among the new generation of conductors. Music Director of the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra and Principal Guest Conductor of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, she is forging an international career and is the latest recipient of the Sir Georg Solti Conducting Award, the largest US grant currently given to young American conductors.
This stream is available to watch until Friday, December 31, 2021.
