New Zealand String Quartet with Jonathan Lemalu (New Zealand)

“As prodigious of voice as he is of personality, Lemalu is always a striking performer” - The Guardian (UK)

New Zealand’s foremost chamber ensemble combines with the glorious baritone voice of Jonathan Lemalu for this programme of four stunning works.

This will be a performance to remember. Barber’s famous Adagio and the music of Shostakovich are combined with Variation 25 by Ross Harris (based on Bach’s Goldberg Variations) and the world premiere of a new work by Chinese-born New Zealand composer Gao Ping.

Anguish, intensity, love and desire will weave together as the gorgeous music of the strings marries with the warm and rich tones of Lemalu – one of the most sought-after talents on the world opera stage.

Ross Harris: Variation 25 for string quartet
Samuel Barber: String Quartet in B, Opus 11
Gao Ping: Three Poems by Mu Xin for baritone and string quartet (World Premiere)
Samuel Barber: Dover Beach, Opus 3 for baritone and string quartet
Dmitri Shostakovich: String Quartet No. 9 in E♭, Opus 117
