Stand up for Barok con­certs

Central Leader - - NEWS -

NZ Barok is an un­con­ven­tional orches­tra – they stand to play and work with­out a con­duc­tor.

But in their up­com­ing con­certs the orches­tra mem­bers will be work­ing with a con­duc­tor for the first time.

The Be­yond the Baroque con­certs are with early mu­sic spe­cial­ist Peter Walls.

They will fea­ture mu­sic from the clas­si­cal pe­riod in­clud­ing Mozart’s beloved Eine Kleine Nacht­musik.

Also join­ing the group is vir­tu­oso soloist Erin Hel­yard play­ing a harp­si­chord con­certo by CPE Bach and a Mozart fortepi­ano con­certo.

‘‘Our au­di­ences will be able to hear the glo­ri­ous colours of Mozart and CPE Bach on the in­stru­ments they were writ­ten for,’’ artis­tic codi­rec­tor Gra­ham McPhail says.

Be­yond the Baroque is on Au­gust 3 and 4 at 2pm at St Luke’s Church, 130 Re­muera Rd, Re­muera.
