NZ Int'l Arts Festival 10 - NZ String Quartet: Ten
35 images Created 7 Mar 2010
A 200-year view of the string quartet, with works written in 1810, 1910 and 2010. Ten includes the world premiere of Ross Harris's The Abiding Tides, which sets the poems of Vincent O'Sullivan for soprano and string quartet. These songs express the high hopes and the desperation of those who sank in the Titanic nearly 100 years ago and those illegal immigrants who continue to lose their lives at sea. Featuring guest soprano Jenny Wollerman.
