On tour with Kathryn Stott

20 April 2017 / News

In May we head off on a Chamber Music New Zealand tour to seven centres around the country with celebrated British pianist Kathryn Stott. We first performed with Kathryn at the Australian Festival of Chamber Music in Townsville in 2007 and were so enamoured of her playing that we invited her to be a guest artist at the 2015 Adam Chamber Music Festival. 

Kathryn Stott is especially renowned for her interpretations of French repertoire. A review in BBC Music Magazine called her "one of the finest Fauré interpreters of her generation", while The Times described “her technical prowess and obvious affection for Fauré” as “legendary." Here she is, playing Faurés Impromptu no 2 in F minor, op 31.

Faure Impromtu No. 2 in F minor Op. 31 by Kathryn Stott.

We’re very much looking forward to playing two late 19th-century quintets with Kathryn - César Franck’s Piano Quintet in F Minor and Dvořák’s Quintet in A, as well as piano quintets by New Zealand composers John Psathas and Gillian Whitehead. Our audiences will also have the opportunity to hear Kathryn playing solo works by Fauré, Ravel and Dutilleux.

Our tour with Kathryn will take us to Nelson, Wellington, Christchurch, Invercargill, Dunedin, Auckland and Hamilton and Kathryn will also perform solo recitals in New Plymouth and Napier.
