Strauss, Pärt and Mendelssohn - HBO and Friends

This concert explores the most-loved chamber music of the string repertoire, making it a joy for classical fans as well as for people who want an experience of live classical music for the first time.

Hawkes’ Bay’s premier orchestral ensemble is joined by professional musician ‘friends’ from around the country to present three landmark compositions for larger chamber ensembles – Strauss’ Capriccio for string sextet, Pärt’s Tabula Rasa for strings and prepared piano, and Mendelssohn Octet.

Capriccio is the opening to the Strauss opera of the same name, and it showcases the luscious string orchestration he’s known for. It has become a stand-alone work because of Strauss' extraordinary ability to create a sound world from only six instruments.

Estonian composer Arvo Pärt wrote Tabula Rasa in 1977 using strings and a prepared piano (a piano with paper inside!) to create a world known only as Pärt. The Festival is truly excited to present this unmissable experience rarely performed in New Zealand. And to conclude Mendelssohn Octet is bursting with energy, virtuosity and excitement.
