Award-winning pianist Henry Wong Doe plays for the Waikanae Music Society as part of his “Back in New Zealand Tour”. A graduate of Auckland University, Indiana University and the Julliard School of Music, he now performs at many prestigious venues world-wide. A passionate educator as well as performer, he is Professor of Piano Studies at Indiana University.

Henry has recently received a Creative New Zealand grant to commission and record six new works by New Zealand composers, under the title of ‘Perspectives’. One of those pieces, 'Redshift' by Gemma Peacocke, will open the concert, leading into Beethoven’s famous masterpiece, the ‘Waldstein’ Sonata.

The second half of the concert is filled with drama and contrast. The spirit of Argentinian folk music is captured in Alberto Ginastera’s exciting 1952 Sonata. Then, after a brief respite offered by a selection from Debussy’s Children’s Corner Suite, the recital will conclude with the passion, excitement and drama of the magnificent Bach/Busoni Chaconne in D minor.

The concert, in the Waikanae Memorial Hall, will be at 2.30pm. Door sales will be available, or tickets can be purchased at Waikanae New World and Moby Dickens Books (Paraparaumu Beach). Enquiries 022 345 5316 or visit www.waikanaemusic.org.nz
