Aroha String Quartet: Light and Dark (Wellington Concert)


The Aroha String Quartet has had to move the date of the Wellington concert in its Light & Dark series. It will now take place at St Andrew’s on the Terrace at 7:30pm on Wednesday 26 September. NZSO First Violinist Anne Loeser joins the quartet to replace Ursula for this concert.

The programme remains the same: the concert 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, elegaic world of Ross Carey’s evocative Toccatina. The dark, sardonic mood of Shostakovich's String Quartet No 11 Op 122, a profound work in seven short movements, is swept away by the final work, Dvorak’s gorgeous, much-loved “American” Quartet Op 96.
