Former NZSO principal horn player Samuel Jacobs is back to solo with the orchestra this week, playing Mozart's Fourth Horn Concerto conducted by Edo de Waart. It's something of a warm-up for his return to the principal horn's chair next season.

RNZ Concert is broadcasting the concert live from Wellington's Michael Fowler Centre on Saturday 30 July, at 7.30pm. As well as the Mozart Horn Concerto, NZSO Music Director Edo de Waart conducts the orchestra in Strauss' giant Sinfonia Domestica, and a work by Dutch composer Rudolph Escher.
