Congratulations to the NZSO and their conductor, Pietari Inkinen.

To perform all of Beethoven's nine symphonies in four consecutive days is a huge ask of any orchestra and conductor.

However, the NZSO performances were nothing but an outstanding success.

All symphonies were magnificently played, the last one including the wonderful Orpheus choir and four splendid soloists.

The musicality, energy and commitment showed that such excellence only comes from hard work and superb leadership.

The last symphony yielded a well-earned, standing ovation from the entire audience - something we haven't seen for a long time.

How can New Zealand, such a small nation, yield such a superb orchestra?

We are so spoilt. Thank you NZSO for such a memorable experience.
