Tecwyn, Terence and Tom – Celebrating Matariki

International Series 1 : Tecwyn, Terence and Tom – Celebrating Matariki 

Friday 28 June, 7:30 pm
Dunedin Town Hall

This concert continues the DSO’s celebration during 2019 of the University’s 150th anniversary by featuring some notable Music talent associated with the University:  three current Music staff members (Pianists Terence Dennis and Tom McGrath and Composer Peter Adams), and a Music graduate (Conductor Tecwyn Evans).

Tecwyn Evans has established a flourishing career in Europe, and he was recently appointed as Director of Music at the Danish National Opera company.

Terence Dennis has been a University staff member since 1981. He is well-known to audiences around the world as a frequent accompanist for Dame Kiri te Kanawa and tenor Simon O’Neill.  Tom McGrath is a Teaching Fellow in Piano Accompaniment in the Music Department, and he performs with other NZ orchestras and Chamber Music NZ.  Terence Dennis and Tom McGrath will join forces to present Poulenc’s jazzy and sparkling Concerto for Two Pianos.

The concert starts with the world première performance of a work by Peter Adams (who was one of the lecturers who taught Tecwyn Evans during his studies at the University). Huriawa evokes the history, atmosphere and character of the Karitane Peninsula just outside Dunedin. The performance of this work also serves to celebrate Matariki.

The concert closes with Brahms’s Symphony No. 3. Considered to be one of Brahms’s most poetic and evocative works, it was hailed by the critic Eduard Hanslick as ‘artistically the most perfect… equal to the best of Brahms’s works…a feast for the music-lover and musician’
