The Auckland Trio will be heralding the start of the festive season with an imaginative combination of Mozart, tangos and Celtic tunes. For those of us who have become traffic-weary, the programme will be repeated at three separate venues across the city.
The group’s core members, violinist Elena Abramova and viola player Greg McGarity, are no strangers to Auckland audiences. For these concerts they are teaming up with cellist James Yoo to explore the realm between classical music and other genres.
One of Mozart’s last great chamber works, the Divertimento for String Trio K.563 will occupy the first half of each concert, after which Greg McGarity will switch between his customary viola and a classical guitar for the group’s own unique arrangements of Piazzola and Celtic music.
