Aroha Quartet, “Light and Dark” concert.

Cash or cheque only please.

Founded in 2004, the versatile Wellington-based Aroha Quartet of Haihong Liu on violin, Zhongxian Jin on viola, Robert Ibell on cello, and Ursula Evans on violin, will take you on an emotional journey, exploring a wide range of moods and soundscapes.

Aroha Quartet present “Light and Dark”, a programme that begins with the warmth and brightness of Haydn’s “Emperor” Quartet Op 76 No 3, with its famous variations on an anthem he wrote for Kaiser Franz II. It then enters the pulsating world of New Zealander, Ross Carey’s evocative Toccatina (Elegy).

The dark, sardonic mood of Shostakovich's String Quartet No 11 Op 122, a profound work in seven short movements, is swept away by their final work: Dvorak’s gorgeous, much-loved “American” Quartet Op 96. Come along to immerse yourselves in this wonderful music!

Acclaimed as demonstrating "accomplished brilliance, soulfulness and sublime intensity in perfect balance and tonal unity" (The Dominion Post), the Aroha String Quartet is firmly established as one of New Zealand's finest chamber music ensembles.
