Bramah Kai Pothio Kai Maomai (world premiere)

Rita Paczian Conductor
Barkin Sertkaya Guitar
Katherine Winitana Soprano

International star guitarist Barkin Sertkaya will perform Vivaldi’s Guitar Concerto followed by Rodrigo’s most famous Concerto de Aranjuez.

At this concert, Bach Musica NZ also presents a world premiere of Kaí Pothío, Kaí Máomai by young award-winning NZ composer Oliver Bramah. The title poetically translates from Ancient Greek as “I miss and yearn after.” Sappho’s fragmented love poems are performed in their original Greek with modern pronunciation. 

Lastly, Poulenc’s Gloria will be performed and features a large symphony orchestra, choir, and solo soprano Katherine Winitana. Composed in 1962, this masterpiece delights with beautiful harmonies, tricky rhythms, sumptuous melodies and is regarded as one of the outstanding choral works of the 20th century.
