About this Recording

HARRIS, Ross: Symphony No. 4, "To the memory of Mahinārangi Tocker" / Cello Concerto (Li-wei Qin, Auckland Philharmonia, G. Walker, Dean)

Commissioned 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. Ross Harris’s Symphonies 2 and 3 can be heard on Naxos 8.572574.
