Henri Dutilleux – Ainsi la Nuit (1976)

The Amici Ensemble presents an exciting programme for Christopher’s Classics. The concert will feature pianist Diedre Irons who will join the Amici Ensemble for the mighty Brahms Piano Quintet and the beautiful Mozart Piano Quartet in G minor, K. 478. Also featured is the string quartet “Ainsi la Nuit” by Henri Dutilleux. Each of its movements highlights various special effects (pizzicato, glissandi, harmonics, extreme registers, contrasting dynamics) resulting in a sparkling and fascinating work.

The ensemble players are all from the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. Donald is Associate Concertmaster, Julia has just been appointed principal viola, and Cristina (violin) and Rowan (cello) are section players. They regularly contribute to our series with inspired programming and performance. Diedre Irons, also a friend and regular with the series, is an inspirational musician and an artist with an international reputation for both chamber music and orchestral concerti.
