Douglas Mews - fortepiano & Robert Ibell - cello.

Enjoy lively music-making in a candlelit performance of five virtuosic works for fortepiano and cello. Two well-known New Zealand musicians perform a programme of Classical and early Romantic pieces on period instruments, transporting the audience to another place and time.

Hammers & Horsehair presents a rich and varied programme. The virtuosity of Bréval's Sonata in G and Romberg's Grand Sonata in E-flat major is complemented by one of Mozart's best-loved Piano Sonatas, the playful and charming Sonata in C K330, and the beautiful Song Without Words Op. 109 by Mendelssohn. Two works by Beethoven, the witty set of Twelve Variations on “Ein Mädchen oder Weibchen” and his Sonata for Piano and Cello Op 5 No 1, open and close the concert.

Admission price includes afternoon tea. Proceeds from the concert will go towards the renovation of the Picton Little Theatre.

Tickets from Take Note (Picton) or Alyssum (Blenheim).
