New Zealand’s finest woodwind players combine to form the creamy and colourful sounds of Zephyr.

Comprising principal players in the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Zephyr has been described as rivalling world-famous chamber ensembles. The members are all experienced chamber musicians and perform with groups including Flight and contemporary ensemble Stroma.

The programme is filled with humour, melancholy, energy, melody and beautiful lyricism.

The Wellington concert features Ligeti’s Six Bagatelles, a work he described as Bartók, with a little Stravinsky. A new CMNZ commission from Gareth Farr also features.

Bridget Douglas – flute
Ed Allen – horn
Robert Weekes – bassoon
Robert Orr – oboe
Philip Green – clarinet

“From the light-hearted to the serious, the programme showcases the wind quintet from every perspective, and demonstrates the lyricism and athletic strengths of this versatile ensemble.” – Bridget Douglas, Zephyr

“The players immediately showed that wonderful ability to create a beautifully blended sound when needed, but also a distinctive timbre …” –The Tribune
