Phantasy for the Arrowtown Creative Arts Society - Aroha Quartet with Robert Orr

n our Phantasy programme we are joined by Robert Orr, NZSO Principal Oboe, for two British works by for oboe and strings: Britten's Phantasy Quartet Op 2, the first piece that brought him international recognition, and Bliss's gorgeous Oboe Quintet. In that programme we also celebrate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth with his first 'Rasumovsky' quartet, the String Quartet No 7 in F Op 59 No 1. The fourth work in this programme is 'refrain' by award-winning New Zealand composer Alex Taylor.
