The New Zealand String Quartet are joined by the Prazak Quartet and David Tanenbaum (guitar) in a Waitangi Day concert - Schubert's heart-breaking beautiful Cello Quintet crowns this line-up of brilliant and innovative musical delights. Ross Harris heard the NZSQ's Goldberg Variations and "became obsessed" - his Variation 25 is the highly expressive result. The Bartok Rumanian Folk Dances are given a new twist with guitar accompaniment, and there could be dancing in the aisles to the Fandango from Boccherini's famous Fandango Quintet!
A concert in the 10th Adam Chamber Music Festival programme, sponsored by Toyota Bowater.
