In their twelve years together, the prize-winning UK-based Doric String Quartet have successfully forged a career path that places them in highly acclaimed chamber music events and series around the world, and working in collaboration with world-class artists. This tour to New Zealand, in partnership with the Royal Overseas League, sees them team up with one of our favourite international touring pianists, Piers Lane.
London-based Australian pianist Piers Lane has a flourishing international career which has taken him to more than forty countries. He is in great demand as a chamber music collaborator, and in 2007 was appointed Artistic Director of the Australian Festival of Chamber Music, held annually in Townsville.
Two giants of the Romantic repertoire are presented on this tour – two piano quintets by Schumann and Brahms, both breathtaking in their scope and emotional range. Each is balanced by a classical Haydn string quartet, and a twentieth-century masterwork. Exquisite solo piano works pay homage to Chopin two hundred years after his birth.
Presented in association with Royal Over-Seas League.
Haydn - String Quartet in D Opus 64 No 5 ‘The Lark’
Bartók - String Quartet No 3 (1927)
