  • Wilma and Friends

Wilma & Friends visit us as part of a Chamber Music New Zealand tour.

A visit back to New Zealand by Wilma Smith is always a great treat and this time she brings with her not only one of Australia’s most distinguished violists in Caroline Henbest, but two of this country’s rising young stars, pianist and composer Andrew Leathwick and cellist Alexandra Partridge who are both studying at the Australian National Academy of Music in Melbourne. 

Wilma Smith is, of course, one of New Zealand’s most celebrated violinists, founding leader of the New Zealand String Quartet, former Concertmaster of the NZSO and more recently Concertmaster of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. Each year she puts together different groups of musical friends she thinks might create some exciting chemistry, to perform everything from revered masterpieces to premieres of new works. 

For this concert, as well as the standard masterpieces by Beethoven and Dvoƙák, we will hear a piano quartet by Andrew that Wilma has commissioned especially for this tour. 

Tickets available from Cromwell iSite and all other Central Otago District iSites. 

Cost; Adults $30, SuperGold $25, Student / Child $5.
