German-Japanese conductor Jun Märkl conducts a spring concert that includes an exciting new New Zealand work and some popular classics. These include Te Māpouriki by New Zealand composer Kenneth Young, Mozart's vigorous Paris Symphony, Strauss' first horn concerto, Mendelssohn's Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage, and Schumann's First Symphony, Spring.
O turn, O turn and change your course— In the valley spring blooms forth!
