Described by the Dominion Post as accomplished brilliance, the Aroha String Quartet is widely recognized as one of New Zealand’s finest groups of musicians .with rave reviews both in New Zealand and overseas.

In Light & Dark you are taken on an emotional journey, exploring a wide range of moods and soundscapes. The programme begins with the warmth and brightness of Haydn’s Emperor Quartet Op 76 No 3, with its famous variations on an anthem he wrote for Kaiser Franz II. It then enters the pulsating world of Ross Careys evocative Toccatina (Elegy).

The dark, sardonic mood of Shostakovichs String Quartet No 11 Op 122, a profound work in seven short movements, is swept away by the Quartet’s final work: Dvoraks gorgeous, much-loved American Quartet Op 96. Come along to immerse yourselves in this wonderful music!
