FREE pre-concert talk starts 45 minutes prior to the concert at the Great Hall, Auckland Town Hall.
British clarinet prodigy Julian Bliss is back in the country, joining forces with our own adventurous NZTrio. This is an opportunity to hear one of the finest living clarinetists with one of New Zealand's leading ensembles.
At the heart of their collaboration is Messiaen’s seminal Quartet for the End of Time, whose wit and beauty belie the fact that it was composed in a German prisoner-of-war camp. Alongside this classic is an inspired and evocative new work written for the ensemble by Ross Harris. Julian Bliss will dazzle you with Debussy’s Première Rhapsodie and Milhaud’s Suite for violin, clarinet and piano.
