Renowned Brodsky Quartet to play vibrant works in Dunedin concert


The world-renowned Brodsky Quartet will present five exciting, boundary-pushing works in their Dunedin performance this week.

Known for pushing the musical boundaries of the string quartet, both in presentation and repertoire, the UK-based Brodsky Quartet – Gina McCormack (violin), Ian Belton (violin), Paul Cassidy (viola), and Jacqueline Thomas (cello), are on tour with Chamber Music New Zealand.

They will perform in Dunedin this Wednesday night, May 15, from 7.30pm at the Glenroy Auditorium.

The “Rhythm & Texture” programme profiles five composers who have consistently ignored musical barriers in favour of freedom of expression.

The performance will highlight the syncopated and vibrant colours of Mexico from Alvarez and Lavista, the neoclassical simplicity of Golijov’s Tenebrae, and one of Gershwin’s few chamber pieces, Lullaby.

A pre-concert talk will be held 45 minutes prior to the performance.
