Trumpeter James Morrison to play at Brisbane concert hall
QSO presents Morrison and Meyer on Friday, July 17 at 7.30pm, at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre Concert Hall (Maestro).
The evening will feature conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali, trumpeter James Morrison, and Edgar Meyer on double bass.
The program includes Nielsen Overture to Maskarade, Savikangas Concerto for Trumpet and Double Bass, and Beethoven Symphony No 5.
Nielsen's colourful Maskarade Overture is followed by Max Savikangas's newly commissioned concerto for virtuosic trumpeter James Morrison and legendary bassist Edgar Meyer, an artist with unparalleled technique and musicianship. This dream combination is set to create a thrilling world premiere.
And then, four notes of music, Fate knocking at the door and a symphony that is the live classical music experience, all conducted by new-school Finnish sensation Santtu-Matias Rouvali.
This world premiere was co-commissioned by QSO/QMF with the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra in Finland, in collaboration with Queensland Music Festival.
