Nordic Lights

Symphony Central Coast - Nordic Lights

Sun, 18th September to Thu, 1st January

Presented by Symphony Central Coast
There is depth in the searching, brooding reflections of the icy landscape under the ‘NORDIC LIGHTS'. Sibelius' colossal and triumphant Second Symphony is a much-loved tour de force in the orchestral repertoire and is one of the most frequently performed 20th century works.

Bridget Bolliger will explore the exquisite beauty and personality of Carl Neilsen's Flute Concerto and Finlandia, Sibelius' hymn to his native country, rounds out a perfect afternoon of Scandinavian delights.

Born in Sydney, Bridget travelled to Switzerland to study with Peter-Lukas Graf at the Basel Music Academy.
For four consecutive years she was awarded the coveted Study Grant of the Migros/Ernst-Göhner Stiftung, while also winning the UBS Flute Competition in Zürich, the Kiefer Hablitzel Award in Bern and a prize at the Swiss Woodwind Competition in St Gallen. She attended masterclasses with Alain Marion, Jean-Pierre Rampal and William Bennett, and played Principal Flute with the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra under Claudio Abbado and Vaclav Neumann, the Schleswig Holstein Festival Orchestra under Christoph Eschenbach and the European Community Youth Chamber Orchestra under James Judd.
