Ritchie: Symphony No. 5 'Childhood'
Christchurch Symphony Orchestra, Kenneth Young

[ Rattle Records / CD ]

Release Date: Friday 23 April 2021

Performed by the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra in the newly restored Christchurch Town Hall under the very sure baton of conductor and album producer, Kenneth Young, Symphony No. 5 "Childhood" is an optimistic work that uses childhood as a metaphor for renewed hope and optimism for the future.

"Symphony No. 5 "Childhood" was recorded in the Christchurch Town Hall in June 2020, newly restored after the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011. I fondly recall attending the opening night of the Town Hall as a 12-year old in 1973, listening to my father, John Ritchie, conduct Beethoven's Symphony No. 5." - Anthony Ritchie, March 2021
