NZSQ | National Tour 2019 - Wellington (St Mary)

Concert

PROGRAMME:
Mozart | String Quartet No. 1 in G Major, K80/73f
Gao Ping | String Quartet - WORLD PREMIERE
Janáček | String Quartet No. 1, ‘Kreutzer Sonata’
Dvořák | String Quartet No. 11 in C Major, Op. 61


Opening the programme will be Mozart’s String Quartet No. 1 in G Major, K80, an early work in which the 14-year-old composer’s mastery of melody and harmony shines. The programme also features two Czech composers. Leoš Janáček subtitled his own String Quartet No. 1 “Kreutzer Sonata” as a nod to Russian writer Leo Tolstoy’s thrilling and passionate tale of the same name – itself inspired by Beethoven’s famous Kreutzer Sonata. Anton Dvořák’s refined String Quartet No. 11 still fizzes with the energy of folk melodies. What’s more, Mozart’s and Janáček’s quartets aren’t the only ‘firsts’ in this musical line-up. An eagerly-anticipated new work, written especially for the New Zealand String Quartet by distinguished composer Gao Ping, will premiere on this tour.
