Gemma New Conductor
Andrew Joyce Cello
Robin Toan Tū-mata-uenga "God of War, Spirit of Man"
Elgar Cello Concerto
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6 Pathétique
A former Conducting Fellow under the mentorship of LA Philharmonic’s Music Director Gustavo Dudamel, New Zealander Gemma New has lead performances at Carnegie Hall and with the symphony orchestras of San Diego, Atlanta, Indianapolis, and San Francisco. You will look forward to her intelligent interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s Sixth Symphony, Pathétique – the vehicle par excellence for expressivity and emotion.
Written in 2005 as the first NYO Composer-in-Residence commission, Robin Toan’s Tū-mata-uenga “God of War, Spirit of Man” was inspired by the Māori story of creation.
