Cellists of Otago will be joined by prevalent pianist Tom McGrath in his arrangements of one of Bach’s most popular keyboard concertos, No. 5 in F minor: short, simple, moving, serenely beautiful and energetic, as well as the bittersweet, beautifully dramatic slow movement of Shostakovich’s piano concerto no.2. The programme, including famous piano works, arranged for cello ensemble by Chopin, Schumann, Debussy and more, promises to bring out the best blend of both the piano and cello and enchant their ever growing audience.
"Cellists of Otago has been a part of the Dunedin's musical landscape for the past decade. Under the direction of Heleen du Plessis, the choir is growing in confidence and skill, presenting very fine concerts to appreciative audiences”. - Press Quote. Brenda Harwood, The Star, March 2017
