About the event
The New Zealand Quartet offers a deeply satisfying program opening with Haydn’s Emperor quartet paired with Shostakovich’s 2nd quartet. Following the beloved Rosamunde Quartet of Schubert, the audience is treated to the delightful Slip by David Flynn, influenced by a mix of traditional Irish music with contemporary classical music and jazz.
