Wellington, St Mary of the Angels

17 Boulcott Street

Delight in the “flair, rigour and integrity” (New Zealand Listener) of New Zealand’s composition vanguard: Samuel Holloway, Chris Gendall and Dylan Lardelli. In Distances, these composers collaborate with artists from the Miyata-Yoshimura- Suzuki Trio and Ensemble Musikfabrik in a programme of captivating music.

This exploration, performed on Japanese and European instruments, unites composers from New Zealand, Japan and Germany and interweaves works from the 21st century with ancient pieces. You’ll become part of a transcendent performance ritual that bridges the distances of time and place.
