...a fantastic performance of a great work...

Light & Dark - Wanaka

In 'Light & Dark' we take you on an emotional journey, exploring a wide range of moods and soundscapes Our programme 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 world of Ross Carey’s evocative Toccatina (Elegy). The dark, sardonic mood of Shostakovich's String Quartet No 11 Op 122, a profound work in seven short movements, is swept away by our final work: Dvorak’s gorgeous, much-loved “American” Quartet Op 96. Come along to immerse yourselves in this wonderful music! This concert is presented by the Wanaka Concert Society.
