...I couldn’t really hope to hear a more engaging, more deeply touching, and more understanding reading of this incredible music. Very great honour to the Aroha Quartet and to Andrew Joyce for giving us such a memorable experience....

Masterworks for String Trio, Paekakariki

Three members of the Aroha Quartet perform rarely heard masterworks for string trio under the name Aroha Ensemble. Mozart's Divertimento for String Trio, written in the same year as his last three symphonies, has been described as one of his noblest works. Beethoven's Opus 9 String Trios were a significant milestone in his development as a composer. His G major trio is rich, energetic, and almost symphonic. The fascinating third work in the programme is a movement from an unfinished trio from Sibelius's mature chamber music period. Tickets $25 Adults $10 under 14 from http://mulledwineconcerts.com
