Join us on our 30th-anniversary tour for a concert filled with passion, yearning, joy and heartache. Each of our two programmes explores themes of love and desire and will take you on an emotional journey through some of the great works of the repertoire.
Romeo and Juliet’s tragic love story serves as the inspiration for the young Beethoven’s first string quartet, and Bartok’s unrequited passion for a virtuoso violinist lies behind his own first foray into the genre. On a happier note, Schumann’s quartet celebrates the composer’s triumph over parental opposition to marrying the love of his life.
We welcome our return to perform in the magnificent St Mary of the Angels following almost four years of restoration and earthquake strengthening. The 95 year old Church is a Wellington landmark, a rare gem, and one of the most beautiful and historic churches in New Zealand.
Join us for a perfect evening of sublime music, all within the glorious candlelit setting of St Mary of the Angels.
