THE NEW ZEALAND FESTIVAL
Wellington, New Zealand
Thursday March 1, 2018 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM ST MARY OF THE ANGELS 17 Boulcott St, Wellington, 6011, New Zealand Romance and Revolution Thursday 01 Mar 6:00pm The Orava Quartet has “arrived, not merely on the international scene, but somewhere near its apex” (Australian Stage). In this first and exclusive New Zealand performance, the trailblazing Orava Quartet brings its unique brand of passion and vitality to the classics of the string quartet repertoire. From Haydn’s “joke” quartet, filled with sheer beauty as well as wit, to Shostakovich’s emotionally wrenching eighth quartet and the lush melodies of Mendelssohn’s String Quartet in A minor, this performance will hold our hearts and heads in equal thrall. Haydn String Quartet no. 2 in E-flat major, op. 33, “The Joke” Shostakovich String Quartet no. 8 in C minor, op. 110 Mendelssohn String Quartet no. 2 in A minor, op. 13 ST MARY OF THE ANGELS 17 Boulcott St, Wellington, 6011, New Zealand General Admission : $49
