The Villani Piano Quartet will conclude the Golden Season of concerts in St Heliers promoted by the St Heliers Music Centre under the direction of Marcello Napoli and Flavio Villani. This is the fifth of a great series of concerts and it's a great occasion to spend a mid spring Sunday listening to these wonderful gems of the Romantic repertoire. Come to hear these rarely performed piano quartets and be prepared to be transported by the passion and temper of these great composers.

Mahler - Piano Quartet in A minor
Schnittke - Piano Quartet in A minor
Brahms - Piano Quartet in G minor

Bio
This new ensemble is the result of previous collaborations between the four players in various combinations since start of 2014. Masters in Chamber Music Sarah Spence and Marko Pop Ristov, who met playing as principals with the newly formed "Wairua Sinfonietta" have joined forces with established Auckland musicians Flavio Villani and Alex McDonald to create an ensemble which we aim to be a dynamic and innovative force in the chamber music in New Zealand.

We have come together with the passion to perform rarely played piano quartets from composers such as Brahms, Mahler, Schumann and many others. We hope to fill a niche for performing piano quartets in New Zealand: to our knowledge there are no piano quartets regularly performing and the Villani Piano Quartet will provide the platform for audiences to experience these wonderful ensemble works.

The expertise in the group is extensive and award-winning; with all four players receiving accolades for their solo and chamber performances in New Zealand and overseas. We seek the opportunity to offer this rarely performed repertoire to the regions and to metropolitan New Zealand.
