We regret to advise the postponement of this event due to the ongoing COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation. We are hugely disappointed to miss the opportunity to perform for you all; however, our number one priority is the health and safety of our audiences, musicians and staff, and the wider community. We ask everyone to look after themselves and each other during this time and continue to monitor and follow government advice.
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. Written throughout his life, Beethoven’s string quartets remain, like his symphonies, some of the most remarkable classical music ever composed. Don’t miss this extraordinary music on tour.
Reset your expectations at each of these exceptional and individual quartets. Across our National Tour 2020 prepare yourself to trace Beethoven’s evolution from brilliant classicist to daring modernist. Acclaimed world-wide for our performances of Beethoven’s music, join us for the first of two unforgettable programmes in Tauranga. 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.
