Lamb & Hayward Masterworks: Compassion

Christchurch Symphony Orchestra

Saturday 14 March, 7:30PM
Douglas Lilburn Auditorium, Christchurch Town Hall

Benjamin Northey – Chief Conductor
Te Ahikaaroa
Lior Attar – Tenor

Pieta Hextall / Te Ahikaaroa – New work for orchestra and kapa haka (premiere)
Nigel Westlake / Lior Attar – Compassion (New Zealand premiere)

This concert is 1 hour long and has no interval. 

We open this special concert with the world premiere of a work for kapa haka and orchestra developed in collaboration between Victoria Kelly and Te Ahikaaroa.

Compassion draws from the rich worlds of Islam and Judaism to present a collection of profound and poetic messages surrounding the idea of compassion between human beings. Sung in Hebrew and Arabic, this deeply moving and powerful work weaves together the mesmerising voice of Lior with the sounds of the symphony orchestra.
