"You could see the joy in the performers' faces and movements as much as you could hear it in the playing." The New York Times
Juilliard415 represent the best-of-the-best early-music ensemble from the Julliard School, with a reputation for combining youthful energy with poise, precision, and a luminous sound. For this New Zealand tour, J415 join forces with maestro Masaaki Suzuki, hugely esteemed for his performances and recordings of Bach.
The programme concentrates on Bach and Handel, the giants of the baroque era. It will give audiences a tantalising taste of Bach’s work, and guarantees an evening of luminous, vital performances.
There will be a pre-concert talk given by Peter Walls, CEO of Chamber Music New Zealand, at 6.45pm in the Upstairs Lounge.
