A Night in Budapest

The New Zealand Chamber Soloists have been performing regularly throughout New Zealand and overseas since 2006. The core group is a piano trio that combines the talents of Katherine Austin (piano), Lara Hall (violin), and James Tennant (cello).  In this concert they're joined by composer, conductor and clarinettist Peter Scholes.

Peter was Founder and is currently Musical Director of the Auckland Chamber Orchestra. His specialist instrument is the clarinet, and interpretations received international acclaim when he was prize winner in the 1987 International Gaudeamus Interpreters Competition held in Rotterdam. From 1980 to 1993 he was principal clarinet with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra and clarinet tutor at the School of Music. Peter has lectured in clarinet, electronic music, conducting and chamber music at University of Auckland and Waikato University.

The New Zealand Chamber Soloists  is dedicated to presenting classical music as a spontaneous and vivid experience, in which the audience and performers are connected through the universal language of music.  Since its inception, the group have celebrated the unique voice of New Zealand's new generation of composers, alongside the works of the classical and 20th century traditions.
