"Last night here in Oamaru we had an energising brilliant concert from New Baroque- but what was truly notable is Rakuto Kurano's Concerto- as new NZ compositions go this ranks at least with
our musical greats- and for my money I have not ever enjoyed a new piece of work more-nor been unable to fault it for its compositional elements of technicality more than matched by its rich beauty of genre: truly a 21st C work that shows the best of 17th endures, and maybe could even outshine!
All music lovers of all genres should not miss your remaining performances this next week in Timaru today/ then on through to West Coast, Nelson Welllington: we only had 50ish but it was an engaged audience that spontaneously gave a standing ovation to Rakuto- as also the whole ensemble. A night to be remembered- and Mark assured me they will continue to return to Oamaru.
What great music does is unmatched therapy- New Baroque deserves all our accolades and patronage!"
Bruce

"What a wonderful concert last night! I saw a friend there who is not a classical concert-goer at all, but was accompanying his father-in-law who said to me "The music just draws you in, this won't be my last concert". Rakuto Kurano's work was jaw-dropping in it's maturity, the Fugue being the absolute highlight for me. I can't wait for the next concert
