Adam Chamber Music Festival - The Romantic Bartók

Saturday 10th February 2024

Hungarian pianist Dénes Várjon and New Zealand String Quartet present Bartók’s early Piano Quintet is a dramatic and powerful work super-charged with expressivity, showing the influences of Brahms, Debussy, Liszt and Strauss and the beginnings of Bartók’s fascination with folk music. To the best of our knowledge this is a New Zealand premiere.

But first up is Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody ‘Héroïde-élégiaque’, setting the heady tone for the delights to come.
