FARR The Nor'West Arch
STRAUSS Oboe Concerto
STRAVINSKY Le Sacre du Printemps (The Rite of Spring)

Commissioned by Christchurch Arts Festival, Gareth Farr's Nor'West Archis a memorial to the victims of the February 2011 earthquake. This orchestral version was premiered by the Queensland Symphony Orchestra in remembrance of the 2011 Queensland flood victims.

Strauss' concerto for oboe was inspired by a chance meeting with an American soldier. It features Sydney Symphony Principal Oboe Diana Doherty as soloist.

Stravinsky's Le Sacre du Printemps (The Rite of Spring) is considered one 
of the most significant works of the 20th century. For this special concert, the 90-member Christchurch Symphony Orchestra will be joined by musicians from The University of Canterbury and Christchurch Youth Orchestra.
