Ning Feng VIOLIN
Mendelssohn Overture: Ruy Blas
Mendelssohn Symphony No.4 'Italian'
Beethoven Violin Concerto
We are delighted to welcome back Ning Feng, who has been adopted as a virtual Kiwi since winning the Michael Hill International Violin Competition in 2005. He will play Beethoven’s Violin Concerto – one of the cornerstones of the violin repertoire and one of the composer’s most popular works. This performance by Ning Feng will be an unforgettable rendition of this masterwork for the instrument.
“[Ning Feng] makes an even more fascinating impression in the lyrical passages, with tenderly nuanced structures full of delicate protractions, promises and refusals. [He] is able to change virtuosity into a pure desire for life.” – Isabel Herzfeld, Department: Berlin Culture
GREAT ORGAN CLASSICS
'Master of the Violin' ticket holders are invited to attend a free, 30-minute organ recital at 6.30, before the pre-concert talk.
This week's organist is Tim Noon.
With twenty years’ experience as an organist and choir director in several British cathedrals, Timothy Noon is currently Director of Music at Auckland Cathedral of the Holy Trinity. He combines his daily work with the Cathedral’s three choirs (of children and adults) with a busy and varied freelance schedule.
As an organist, he is a frequent solo performer, and has performed concerts in many prestigious venues across Europe. In 2009 he gave a recital as part of the International Congress of the Incorporated Association of Organists. He is currently working on projects as a soloist with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra and the Auckland Symphony Orchestra.
Tim also serves on the boards of the Australia and New Zealand College of Organists and the New Zealand Choral Federation, is an examiner for the ABRSM and sings in several Auckland-based groups including V8 vocal ensemble. He is active as a composer and arranger and has been published by the RSCM, Encore, and, most recently, Novello.
