Ross Harris: Symphony No.4 ‘To the Memory of Mahinārangi Tocker’, Cello Concerto
Label: Naxos
Released: May 1, 2014
Catalog Num: 8.573044

ommissioned by the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, Ross Harris’s Fourth Symphony is a tribute to and a portrait of poet and songwriter Mahinārangi Tocker. Her movingly evocative words and songs serve as references for each movement, while a solo viola increasingly takes on her character and personality. The Cello Concerto was inspired by the brilliant playing of cellist Li-Wei Qin, its single continuous movement a dramatic dark-to-light journey filled with rich singing lines and extravagant virtuosity.
