Chamber Music New Zealand
Get ready for June, when the great Bach authority Masaaki Suzuki and an outstanding contingent from The Juilliard School in New York are taking over the country for a national tour and a three-day residency in Nelson. Bach’s instrumental music and much-loved vocal works are the focus for this tour, bound to be both vibrant and profound.

Sigiswald Kuijken, internationally recognised as a leader in historical performance practice, founded the baroque orchestra La Petite Bande and the Kuijken String Quartet. The Kuijken Quartet is a family affair, with Sigiswald and his wife Marleen Thiers (viola), with daughter Sara (violin) and for this CMNZ tour, Michel Boulanger (cello). The string quartet is back in New Zealand in July for a two-week tour; expect the best of Haydn and Mozart string quartets on period instruments.
