The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra will lead concertgoers across new frontiers with its homage to Stanley Kubrick’s science fiction classic 2001: A Space Odyssey in Auckland next month.
Co-presented by Auckland Arts Festival, A Symphonic Odyssey is a one-off performance of orchestral greats from the film, including epic works by György Ligeti and Richard Strauss.
NZSO Music Director Emeritus James Judd returns to New Zealand from the US to conduct the concert. He says the blockbuster music is a giant in scale and will thrill the audience.
The programme includes Luciano Berio’s rarely-performed 1968 masterpiece Sinfonia, considered to be the most revolutionary avant-garde symphony of the twentieth century.
