Our Heartland Classics tour features two irresistible programmes including finely-crafted quartets by Haydn and Mozart; Schubert’s brief but intense Quartettsatz; two of Dvorak’s short, descriptive Cypresses; Mendelssohn’s exuberant Quartet no 3 in D; and Dvorak’s optimistic American quartet.

We’ll also introduce you to recent works by Gareth Farr and Gillian Whitehead: Gareth’s Te Tai-O-Rehua describes the turbulent waters of the Tasman Sea, while Gillian’s Poroporoaki imitates the sounds of Maori instruments, which in turn imitate the sounds of nature.

Concert Programme 2:
- Mozart: String Quartet no 16 in E flat, K. 428
- Gillian Whitehead: Poroporoaki
- Dvorak: 2 Cypresses (no 3 & no 11)
- Mendelssohn: String Quartet no 3 in D, op 44 no. 1
