Expressions Arts & Entertainment Centre presents



Monday 30 September | 7.30pm

Veteran concert-goers will remember Michael Houstoun's' complete Beethoven Sonata series of 1993 which he originally gave in Wellington and repeated in a number of centres around the country. Twenty years later he is repeating this 'tour de force' performing the entire cycle in three batches in Chamber Music NZ's four main concert centres over the season. Classical Expressions has been granted permission to repeat the 5th concert of the CMNZ series to close its 2013 season.'.

The concert concludes with Richard Strauss's Metaporphosen written during the closing months of World War II. The piece is most familiar in the string orchestra version but Strauss originally sketched the work for this 7-string ensemble version.

Beethoven: Sonata in A major Op. 2 No. 2

Beethoven: Sonata in C minor OP. 13 'Pathetique'
