April 2011 will see the launch of The New Zealand International Piano Festival or NZIPF (formerly known as the Auckland International Piano Festival AIPF).
This exciting event will bring together five international concert pianists from all over the globe, to not only perform solo piano recitals at The Concert Chamber, Town Hall, Auckland but to also provide a supreme educational experience for New Zealand’s up and coming musicians through masterclasses.
In this concert pianist Stephen De Pledge presents a suite of 12 "Landscape Preludes" commissioned from New Zealand’s most renowned composers.
Other pieces in this concert include 3 Mazurkas Op.7 nr.1, 2 and 3 by Chopin and Six Fantasies Op. 118 by Brahms.
(Note: videos of the 12 "Landscape Preludes" also performed by Stephen De Pledge at the 2008 New Zealand International Arts Festival are available through SOUNZ's website)
