Aroha Quartet with Diedre Irons play 'Unbound' for Waikanae Music Society

Our programme begins 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. The concert continues with 'Unbound', an expressive, heartfelt work for string quartet written in 2011 by New Zealand composer Brigid Bisley. For the finale, we are delighted to be joined by Diedre Irons, one of New Zealand's finest pianists, for the sublime Piano Quintet in F minor by Brahms. Combining lyrical beauty and rhythmic muscularity, this is one of the best-loved chamber music works of all time. See the Waikanae Music Society website for ticketing details.
