Beethoven | Illuminator | Blenheim

August 2020

This year we're celebrating a massive composer with a massive tour. The 2020 National Tour brings Beethoven back on his 250th birthday, travelling throughout New Zealand between June and October. Settle in for an afternoon of exquisite music with a glass of luscious Cloudy Bay wine.*

Acclaimed world-wide for our performances of Beethoven’s music, join us for an unforgettable programme. Reset your expectations at each of these exceptional and individual quartets. Prepare yourself to trace Beethoven’s evolution from brilliant classicist to daring modernist. Beethoven | Illuminator brings you music that glows with the elegant influences of Mozart and Haydn before soaring light-years away to a sound-world that could only be Beethoven’s own. 

Pre-bookings essential. Our concerts at Cloudy Bay Vineyards sell out fast, so be sure to book well in advance to secure your seat at the table.

*Food and wine may be purchased from the cellar door prior to the concert.
