This pairing of the incomparable William Barton with celebrated string ensemble the Brodsky Quartet is a sensational combination, and a first for Aotearoa audiences.

Recognised as one of Australia’s leading didgeridoo players, William Barton’s performances generate awe. He is joined by Britain’s elite Brodsky Quartet, whose collaborators include the likes of Elvis Costello and Björk.

The programme features music by Barton, a renowned composer in his own right; the Aotearoa premiere of Andrew Ford’s String Quartet No 7: Eden Ablaze, written during the Australian bushfires of 2019; works by Australian composer Peter Sculthorpe and our own Salina Fisher; and Janáček and Stravinsky pieces to round out this special evening of world-class chamber music.
