Christchurch Symphony Orchestra

Embodying themes of heroism, humanity and nature, the music of the Romantic movement (18th and 19th centuries) was art for the soul.

The CSO concert Romantics features three masterpieces of this era: Beethoven's Egmont Overture, inspired by Dutch nobleman Count Egmont's heroic martyrdom opposing the Spanish Inquisition; Mendelssohn's hugely popular Concerto for Violin, and Dvorák's cheerfully Bohemian Symphony No. 8.

Soloist for Mendelssohn's lyrical masterpiece is Australian violinist Kristian Winther in his debut performance with the CSO. Kristian is first violin with the Australian String Quartet and considered one of Australia's greatest violinists performing today.
