Helene discusses Dangerous Liaisons Programme Two

NZSQ 30th-anniversary tour Dangerous Liaisons, August - September 2017.

Helene Pohl, First Violin discusses Programme Two of the Dangerous Liaisons tour.

Mendelsohn’s first love and Janacek’s obsession with a woman half his age were both doomed to failure yet inspired some of their most beautiful works. Jack Body’s Saetas takes its inspiration from the fire and passion of flamenco songs and reveals Rolf Gjelsten’s secret talent as an accomplished accordionist.

Programme Two
Janacek: String Quartet no 2, Intimate Letters
Jack Body: Saetas
Mendelssohn: Quartet no 2 in A minor, op 13
