Selected Ensembles of  Chamber Music

Douglas Mews- Fortepiano  

Robert Ibell – Cello

Enjoy superb music-making in a candlelit performance of five virtuosic works for fortepiano and cello. Two well-known New Zealand musicians perform a programme of Classical and early Romantic pieces on period instruments, transporting the audience to another place and time.

Hammers & Horsehair presents a rich and varied programme. The virtuosity of Bréval's Sonata in G and Romberg's Grand Sonata in E-flat major is complemented by one of Mozart's best-loved Piano Sonatas, the playful and charming Sonata in C K330. Two works by Beethoven, his witty set of Twelve Variations on “Ein Mädchen oder Weibchen” and the Sonata for Piano and Cello Op 5 No 1, open and close the concert.
