“She plays wonderfully, allowing her music fluidity and space; her virtuoso outpourings are formidable” - The Daily Telegraph, UK


The music of Debussy, Fauré, Franck and Ravel is some of the most beautiful and enigmatic in the repertoire of any pianist, and Kathryn Stott is renowned for the precision and exquisite sense of colour in her interpretation of these composers.

Renowned for her interpretations of French piano repertoire – full of ‘evanescent colours and shimmering, elusive light’ – the British pianist will be joining the New Zealand String Quartet for solo and chamber music at the Auckland Town Hall.

Debussy’s L'Isle joyeuse – inspired by Watteau’s enigmatic painting L’Embarquement pour Cythère – is at the centre of Kathryn’s recitals, alongside Dutilleux’s Piano Sonata;  this is a rare opportunity to hear these ravishing works programmed together.

In Kathryn’s partnership with the New Zealand String Quartet, the passion of Franck’s 1879 Quintet, and the Czech inspiration behind Dvořák’s Quintet contrast with Psathas’s Piano Quintet, premiered by the quartet in 2000.
