About this Event
The Francis-Lee Duo bring us European Journeys, an exciting programme inspired by the special exhibition of the same name at the Auckland Art Gallery in 2019, celebrating works by New Zealand artist, Frances Hodgkins.
The Duo start the journey at Manheim with Mozart’s violin sonata k. 301, a perfect example of Mozart’s more mature style.
This is followed by Two Romances by the pioneer Swedish woman composer Elfrida Andree, lyrical pieces inspired by Nordic music literature.
Keeping on the Nordic theme are the Folk Dances Op. 62 by Danish composer Niels Gade.
The journey concludes at Transylvania with the iconic Romanian Folk Dances by Bartok, brilliantly transcribed for violin and piano by Zoltán Székely.
This is a programme not to be missed that will transport you to foreign lands.
This event is held at the Central City Library*, 44-46 Lorne St, Auckland City. Book tickets here or if you need help call 09 377 0209.
