The New Zealand String Quartet’s annual “candlelight” concert at St Mary of the Angels Church has been popular with Wellington concertgoers for many years. This year, New Zealand’s favorite chamber ensemble is joined by musical friends from the NZSO for a rich and varied programme.
For Strauss’s thrilling septet Metamorphosen, three NZSO musicians will join the Quartet – outstanding double bass player Hiroshi Ikematsu, Principal bass with the NZSO, alongside Andrew Joyce, Principal cello and Julia Joyce, viola.
Hiroshi will also join the Quartet for the Dvorak Bass Quintet and the programme will be completed by John Psathas’s Greek-inspired string quartet, Kartsigar.
