LORELLE McNAUGHTON - FRIDAY 12 AUGUST at 6 PM
New Zealand pianist Lorelle McNaughton carries a wide breadth of knowledge and experience after years of tertiary study in New Zealand, Australia, and Europe. She has performed extensively across the globe and was recently invited to perform at the 'Oceania' Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. After ten years living abroad, Lorelle has returned to New Zealand to continue her successful career.
Mulled Wine Concerts will present Lorelle McNaughton in Featherston's ANZAC HALL on Friday August 12 from 6-7 PM. Lorelle has been particularly commended for her inspired interpretation of the Spanish piano repertoire.
She lived in Spain for three years and completed a Master of Spanish Music in Barcelona gaining an invaluable insight into the works of the great Spanish composers. An aficionado of the vibrant and passionate art form of flamenco which emerged from the gypsy quarters of Southern Spain, she says “during my time in Spain teachers thought I must've been a gypsy in a former life!”
On the programme will be three Spanish Dances Op.37 by Enrique Granados, “Aragonesa” and “Andaluza” pieces by Manuel de Falla, the Andalusian Spanish composer and pianist, one of Spain's finest musicians of the 20th century, French composer Claude Debussy's “Estampes” and the concert will end with Isaac Albéniz's Book Three of Iberia.
While looking forward to performing this repertoire in Featherston, Lorelle hopes to inspire listeners to explore more of this wonderfully colourful and evocative music. Bringing a breath of warm Spanish sunshine to midwinter Wairarapa, this will be a concert to delight everyone.
