20 May 2022 - It has been such a privilege and pleasure to play our Clarinet Quintet programme around the country in the last couple of months. It’s wonderful to work with our friends and colleagues, the NZSO’s Principal Bass Clarinet Rachel Vernon and NZSO First Violinist Anne Loeser (playing instead of our usual second violinist Konstanze Artmann). We’ve also been lucky to be able to bring three amazing pieces of music to audiences. In many cases this has been the first live performance people have attended for many months. This has given the concerts a special atmosphere.

We’re thrilled to be able to play some extra shows of this programme: in Whanganui on 13 September (postponed from earlier in the year) and in Oamaru and Dunecin in mid-October (further details to come).
