...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....

Aroha Quartet plays 'Metamorphoses' at the Globe, Palmerston North

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. Tickets ($25 Adults, $20 Concessions, $50 Families - 2 Adults + 2 Children, $5 Children under 18 yrs) from the Globe Theatre.
