Dangerous Liaisons – New Zealand String Quartet

August 25, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

dangerous liaisons orchestra devonport

Join us on our 30th-anniversary tour for a concert filled with passion, yearning, joy and heartache. Our ‘Dangerous Liaisons’ programme explores themes of love and desire and will take you on an emotional journey through some of the great works of the repertoire.

Romeo and Juliet’s tragic love story serves as the inspiration for the young Beethoven’s first string quartet, and Bartok’s unrequited passion for a virtuoso violinist lies behind his own first foray into the genre. On a happier note, Schumann’s Quartet celebrates the composer’s triumph over parental opposition to marrying the love of his life.

A word of warning: this will be an intimate affair and the music may steal your heart!

– Beethoven: String Quartet no 1 in F, Op 18/1
– Bartok String Quartet no 1 in A minor, Sz.40
– Schumann: String Quartet in A, op 41 no 3
