The Beethoven Violin and Piano Sonatas – A Central Otago celebration of the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth.

NZ violinist Justine Cormack and American pianist Kate Boyd perform the final concert in their 3-concert series featuring Beethoven’s 10 violin and piano sonatas. Every sonata is a unique gem and these performances are a fabulous way to experience and celebrate both Beethoven’s compositional evolution as well as his unquestionable creative genius.

Programme 3: Queenstown

Sonata no. 4 in a minor, op. 23
Sonata no. 5 in F major, op. 24 (“Spring”)
**
Sonata no. 10 in G major, op. 96

The three concerts in this series have been structured to be enjoyed as stand-alone performances, but our fervent hope is that many will take the chance to experience the magnificence of the entire cycle.

Other performances: Programme 1: Sonatas 1, 6 and 9 (“Kreutzer”), Friday 14 Feb, 7.30pm, Bannockburn Coronation Hall Programme 2: Sonatas 2 , 3, 7 and 8, Saturday 15 Feb, 7.30pm, Lake Wanaka Centre For booking details visit: www.listenfeelplay.nz/beethoven-2020/

The 17 and 18 of May 2019 marked the start of Turn Up the Music’s external engagement programme.

On 17 May a string quartet featuring Benjamin Baker, Justine Cormack, Gillian Ansell and Alexander Hersh performed compositions by Franz Schubert and Gareth Farr at Arrowtown, Shotover, and Queenstown Primary schools. Garth Farr was in attendance too, and spoke about his Mondo Rondo composition.

The following night, the string quartet performed at the launch of the Trust, at Hakitekura, Queenstown.  The set also included a composition by Felix Mendelssohn, followed by a Tchaikovsky encore.

Benjamin Baker took the opportunity to announce the launch of Chamber Music at the World’s Edge.  The aim is to bring chamber music events to the people of Central Otago on a regular and planned basis.

One of the highlights of the launch was a performance by precocious saxophonist Eliott Allemand, a graduate of the Lakes Community Music School.  Eliott showcased the potential of Turn Up the Music’s programme and its music school.
