About the event

Hungarian pianist Dénes Várjon and New Zealand String Quartet present Bartók’s early piano quintet in a dramatic and powerful work super-charged with expressivity, showing the influences of Brahms, Debussy, Liszt and Strauss and the beginnings of Bartók’s fascination with folk music. To the best of our knowledge this is a New Zealand premiere.

But first up is Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody ‘Héroïde-élégiaque’, setting the heady tone for the delights to come.

Liszt – Hungarian Rhapsody No 5 ‘Héroïde-élégiaque’ – Izabella Simon

Bartók – Piano Quintet in C major – Dénes Várjon (piano), New Zealand String Quartet

Duration: Approximately 75 minutes, no interval

Proudly supported by Robert Hirschhorn & John Hall
