Hammers & Horsehair

200 King Street South, Hastings

After their successful 2016 nationwide tour Hammers & Horsehair (Rowena Simpson - soprano, Douglas Mews - square piano, & Robert Ibell - cello) present a rich and varied programme of music from the first half of the Nineteenth Century.

Three beautiful but rarely heard songs by Bohemian composer Jan Kalivoda and Schubert’s famous ‘Shepherd on the Rock’ begin and end the concert. In between are excerpts from Schumann’s evocative ‘Scenes from Childhood’, two special Lieder by Schubert and one of the best-loved sonatas for piano and cello, Beethoven’s Sontata in A major Op 69.

The musical pieces will be linked by short readings that reflect the era or the mood of the music, including reflections on the contribution of German musicians to life in New Zealand.

This candlelit concert takes place in the intimate setting of the Guild Room in St Matthew's Church Hall.
