After their successful 2016 nationwide tour Hammers & Horsehair (Rowena Simpson - soprano, Douglas Mews - square piano, & Robert Ibell - cello) present a rich and varied programme of music from the first half of the Nineteenth Century in an intimate, candlelit concert.

Three beautiful but rarely heard songs by Bohemian composer Jan Kalivoda and Schubert’s famous ‘Shepherd on the Rock’ begin and end the concert. In between are excerpts from Schumann’s evocative ‘Scenes from Childhood’, two special Lieder by Schubert and one of the best-loved sonatas for piano and cello, Beethoven’s Sonata in A major Op 69.

The musical pieces will be linked by short readings that reflect the era or the mood of the music and the contribution of German-speaking immigrants to life in New Zealand.

Choirs from Whangamata Area School and Opoutere Primary School will join Hammers & Horsehair to showcase their own talents in this special concert.

Tickets from Whanga Books or from either of the two schools.
