To mark the Liszt bi-centenary this year, the New Zealand String Quartet is bringing Hungarian piano virtuoso Péter Nagy to New Zealand for a national tour of Hungarian-inspired chamber music, concluding with two concerts in the Hunter Council Chamber at Victoria University, Wellington.

This afternoon's concert will feature:
Bartok – String Quartet No 2
Ligeti – String Quartet No. 1 (‘Métamorphoses nocturnes’)
Liszt – Fourth Mephisto Waltz/Bagatelle sans tonalité
Liszt – Csárdás in F-sharp minor and Csárdás obstinée
Dohnanyi – Piano Quintet No. 2 in E♭ minor, Op. 26

A second concert, with a different programme will take place tomorrow evening in the same venue. There is a special ticket price available for those who wish to come to both concerts.

Peter Nagy, a graduate of the famous Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest and winner of the prestigious Liszt Award in 2001, has a remarkable international career as soloist and chamber music and is also active as a teacher, holding positions as Head of the Piano Department at the Liszt Academy in Budapest and Professor of Piano at the Hochschule für Musik in Stuttgart. He last toured with the New Zealand String Quartet in 2006 in the Magical Mozart Tour, when he was based at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch.
