Classical Expressions 2024 presents

Amici Ensemble

Thursday 9 May | 7.30pm

The Amici Ensemble was formed in 1988 and is led by NZSO Associate Concertmaster Donald Armstrong. They are committed to performing works of all periods for differing combinations of instruments from the very small to the very large. The performers for this programme are Donald Armstrong, Andrew Thomson, Alexander McFarlane, viola tba, Andrew Joyce. For 2024 they are performing two of the most beautiful string quintets by Mozart and Brahms. The sounds of two violas in the string quintet brings a special richness and warmth to the ensemble. The concert begins with a trio by one of New Zealand early composers, Ron Tremain, and a duo by one of New Zealand’s youngest composers Salina Fisher.

Ron Tremain - String Trio, First movement

Salina Fisher - "Yabo" for Violin and Viola

Mozart String Quintet in C Major, KV515
