Chamber Music New Zealand presents JULIAN BLISS & NZTRIO

British clarinet prodigy Julian Bliss is back in the country, joining forces with our own adventurous NZTrio. This is an opportunity to hear one of the finest living clarinetists with one of New Zealand's leading ensembles.

At the heart of their collaboration is Messiaen's seminal Quartet for the End of Time, whose wit and beauty belie the fact that it was composed in a German prisoner-of-war camp. Alongside this classic is an inspired and evocative new work written for the ensemble by Ross Harris.

"Bliss must no longer be regarded merely as a great talent, but rather as a consummate master of his instrument." - Fanfare Magazine
