Quin­tet’s con­cert a first for Paekakariki


For three mu­si­cians, this week­end’s Kapiti con­cert will si­mul­ta­ne­ously break new ground, and bring back mem­o­ries of uni­ver­sity.

Eleanor Carter, her sis­ter Kathryn Mosley and El­iz­a­beth Patch­ett are three parts of the Iota Pi­ano Quin­tet, who will per­form at the Paekakariki Me­mo­rial Hall on Sun­day af­ter­noon as part of the Mulled Wine Con­cert se­ries.

The quin­tet will be per­form­ing Carl Cz­erny’s ar­range­ment of Beethoven’s Pi­ano Con­certo No. 2, the first time the piece has been per­formed by a quin­tet any­where.

They will also per­form Schu­mann’s pi­ano quin­tet in E flat, a piece Carter, Mosley and Patch­ett played many times to­gether while study­ing at Auck­land Uni­ver­sity, and Beethoven’s String Trio in D.

The quin­tet’s other two mem­bers are vi­o­lin­ist Re­becca Struthers and vi­o­list Lyn­d­say Mount­fort.

All mem­bers ex­cept Mosley, who is based in Eng­land, are in the NZSO.

Mulled Wine Con­certs or­gan­iser Mary Gow said the Cz­erny piece’s pre­miere would bring out a few pi­anists in the area.

‘‘It’s un­be­liev­able ... for it to be hap­pen­ing in Paekakariki is pretty fan­tas­tic.

‘‘I can’t wait un­til Sun­day comes.’’

She said the Schu­mann piece had never been per­formed as part of the con­cert se­ries.

The con­cert starts at 2:30pm. Tick­ets are $25 for adults, and $10 for stu­dents un­der 14. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit the Mulled Wine Con­certs web­site or Face­book page.
