"You could see the joy in the performers' faces and movements as much as you could hear it in the playing" - The New York Times, USA
Juilliard415 represent the best-of-the-best early music ensemble from the Julliard School, with a reputation for combining youthful energy with poise, precision and a luminous sound.
For this New Zealand tour, J415 join forces with maestro Masaaki Suzuki, hugely esteemed for his performances and recordings of Bach.
The programme concentrates on Bach and Handel, the giants of the baroque era. It will give audiences a tantalising taste of Bach’s work, and guarantees an evening of luminous, vital performances.
Chamber Music New Zealand are delighted to be offering an Audio Description service for their Masaaki Suzuki and Juilliard415 concert. An audio describer will translate the magic of live classical music for the visually impaired, in real time as the concert is happening.
Before the concert, participants are invited to take part in a special Touch Tour. This will take place on stage, and includes an opportunity to feel where the instruments are placed in relation to one another, and hold/touch the period instruments that are on the concert programme.
