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.
