Aroha String Quartet

In 'Light & Dark' we take you on an emotional journey, exploring a wide range of moods and soundscapes Our programme 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 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 our 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.

Founded in 2004, this versatile Wellington-based quartet is known for its passionate musicality, impressive technique, and multicultural innovation. Visit the Quartet's website for more information.

This concert was originally scheduled for 17 June and 30 September. The date has had to be changed yet again due to unforeseen schedule changes. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Anne Loeser will take the place of Ursula Evans for this performance.
