Featuring Miranda Adams, Assistant Concertmaster
Schubert - String Quartet No.12 ‘Quartettsatz’
Claire Cowan - Hansel and Gretel: Short and Sweet Ballet Suite
Leonie Holmes - Fragment II for String Quartet
Ross Harris - Five Meditations
Piazzolla - Four, for Tango
Miranda Adams and her APO colleagues in the Jade String Quartet bring us a fascinating collection of music. The programme includes Schubert’s movement from an unfinished quartet, and Piazzolla’s vigorous tango and works from three New Zealand composers. Anyone who saw the Royal NZ Ballet’s Hansel and Gretel in 2019 will want to revisit Claire Cowan’s hugely successful score.
