Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Described as \often beautiful and sometimes frightening" (NZ Listener), Ross Harris's Symphony No. 2 is a setting of poems on the subject of New Zealand soldiers shot for desertion in World War One. Writer Vincent O'Sullivan's deeply felt descriptions of violence, love and tragedy are reflected in a moving and dramatic score. Symphony No. 3 is inspired by the paintings of Marc Chagall, and develops and transforms klezmer-like tunes as its basic material. These symphonies were composed for the Auckland Philharmonia, and both won the SOUNZ Contemporary Award.

From 2008 to 2010 Marko Letonja was Principal Guest Conductor of Orchestra Victoria in Melbourne, and from 2012 to 2014 will be Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra. Marko Letonja has been appointed Music Director of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg from the 2012/13 season."
