DAVID HAMILTON - COMPOSER PORTRAIT - "NOT JUST A CHORAL COMPOSER!"
Welcome to the music of David Hamilton. He's one of New Zealand's musical treasures with music which inspires with its imagination and clarity.
This is a concert of chamber music, songs and orchestral music by Auckland composer David Hamilton. Featuring the Auckland Chamber Orchestra conducted by Peter Scholes with Bede Hanley (oboe soloist), Jenni Mori (flute soloist), Helen Acheson (soprano) and Sarah Watkins (piano).
The ACO composer portrait concerts are a precious beacon of activity in the New Zealand music environment. The concerts are an exploration of the variety of expression that each composer has achieved in their work.
"Auckland Chamber Orchestra's Composer Portraits have always been major testaments of cultural faith. National in significance, they present the men and women who catch the heart and spirit of our country in their music." William Dart (NZ Herald)
