Highly regarded UK-based pianist Stephen De Pledge returns to New Zealand to play a concert of miniatures. The centrepiece is the world premiere of Landscape Preludes, a suite of 12 works commissioned from New Zealand's most renowned composers. Complementing the preludes are Messiaen's short bird sketches Petites Esquisses d'Oiseaux and Mozart's Variations on a Theme of Gluck. De Pledge has a particular affinity with Messiaen's music, having studied in Paris with the French composer's widow, Yvonne Loriod.

A regular performer at Wigmore Hall, De Pledge has also won a number of prestigious international awards. Join De Pledge – along with Body, de Castro Robinson, Cresswell, Farr, Harris, Holloway, Kelly, Lardelli, McLeod, Norris, Psathas and Whitehead – for a stunning one-off concert.
