Kathryn Stott & New Zealand String Quartet
“She plays wonderfully, allowing her music fluidity and space; her virtuoso outpourings are formidable.” The Daily Telegraph
Renowned for her interpretations of French piano repertoire - full of ‘evanescent colours and shimmering, elusive light’ - British pianist Kathryn Stott will perform recitals in New Plymouth and Napier, before joining the New Zealand String Quartet for solo and chamber music.
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 NZSQ in 2000.
There will be a prelude event before the concert. Check www.chambermusic.co.nz for more updates.
