About the event

In Monique Lapins’ specially curated programme, she has invited the two violinists of the 2024 Troubadours, Lucas Baker and Peter Gjelsten, both prize-winning former students of New Zealand School of Music Te Kōkī, to join her in Leonie Holmes’ quirky violin trio, originally commissioned by the festival in 2019. Next, You will never hear Mozart sound more bittersweet than in his E minor Sonata, performed by Monique and pianist Gabriela Glapska. We then have three festival firsts – poetic Kaia Saariaho, minimalist John Adams and fiery Karol Szymanowski, performed by Monique and Gabriela.
