New Zealand String Quartet perform Abhisheka

  • Hunter Council Chamber Victoria University Wellington, Wellington, 6012 New Zealand (map)

 

Join us for a concert of groundbreaking works that have each taken the quartet genre in new directions. Beethoven was renowned as a trailblazer so it’s not surprising that this programme features one of his most innovative quartets, the extraordinary opus 131 quartet, which Robert Schumann felt stood “...on the extreme boundary of all that has hitherto been attained by human art and imagination." Also included is Smetana’s poignant, semi-autobiographical “From My Life” and the extraordinary Abhisheka by New Zealand’s own John Psathas.
