Ellie Fagg, Tom Norris (violins), Julia Joyce (viola), Andrew Joyce (cello)
Prince Edward Auditorium, Wanganui Collegiate School

Within just six months of its formation in 2009, the Puertas Quartet reached the semi-finals of the International Bordeaux String Quartet Competition, being the only British quartet to do so. The ensemble was invited to perform as ‘quartet in residence’ for the 2010 Hendon Music Festival and for music societies across the UK.

Julia Joyce (née Macarthy) and her husband Andrew Joyce have both been recently appointed to the positions of Principal Viola and Principal Cello in the NZSO. Another married couple complete the group, English violinists Tom Norris and Ellie Fagg.

Ellie was a foundation scholar at the Royal College of Music, where she graduated with first class honours in 2005. Tom studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and is a principal member of the London Symphony Orchestra.

Their programme includes one of the greatest impressionist works ever written, Ravel’s Quartet in F. This is contrasted with Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous First Quartet, containing the famous Andante Cantabile movement, which reportedly made Leo Tolstoy cry the first time he heard it performed.

Presented by Chamber Music Wanganui in association with the Foundation Music School, Wanganui Collegiate and Chamber Music New Zealand.

Concert one of the Celebrity Subscription Series 2012.

Subscription 4 Flexi Tickets available from the Box Office. Phone 06 3490511 $95.00. Flexi Ticket cannot be used on line.
