QSO concludes its 2016 Maestro series with three brilliant works.
New star pianist Hannes Minnaar makes his QSO debut with one of the most loved concerti — Grieg’s dramatic and swirling work. Alondra de la Parra and QSO will revel in the deliciously sprightly Strauss Till Eulenspiegel tone poem, and we bring the evening to a glorious close with Respighi’s sunlight, bird song and evening tranquillity.
