Olveston at Six is a series chosen by pianist Tom McGrath, who also curated the 2016 and 2018 series.
It comprises four recitals, presented by some of Dunedin’s finest resident musicians, centred around Olveston’s beautiful 1908 New York Steinway grand piano. These soirée concerts follow the rich tradition of music-making in this historic stately home. The series sold out well in advance last time, so book early to avoid disappointment.
A programme of music performed by prominent local musicians Tessa Petersen, Nick Cornish and John Van Buskirk. Works by Ibert, Tailleferre, Milhaud and Eychenne; Joie de Vivre, the joy of life found in French culture encompasses the Gallic gusto of country life and the bright lights in its urban centres. The French music heard in this concert will invite your hearts to celebrate this spirit.
