Aroha Quartet plays 'Metamorphoses' for Rotorua Music Federation

Our programme starts with Mozart's String Quartet No 17 in B-flat K458. Nicknamed 'The Hunt, this is a high-spirited, joyful work, both rustic and sophisticated. It continues with String Quartet No 1 'Métamorphoses nocturnes' by Hungarian composer György Ligeti. Described by one writer as “Bartok's seventh string quartet”, this colourful work is written in seventeen wonderfully contrasting sections played as one continuous movement. The concert finishes with Beethoven's profound String Quartet No 13 in B-flat major Op 130, a piece that explores the limits of what can be expressed in music. This concert for the Rotorua Music Federation takes place in the Nellie Bud Room. Tickets ($30 Adults, $15 Students 18-26 yrs, Free for school age children).
