“With New Zealand moving to Red in the Covid-19 Protection Framework, we have made the decision to cancel our upcoming Baroque Series tour, The Art of Fugue.

The Art of Fugue tour was to begin in Wellington on 11 February, followed by concerts in Paraparaumu, Gisborne, Whakatane, Tauranga, Auckland and Kerikeri until 19 February. The restrictions on capacity and physical distancing required for public events at Red mean we are no longer able to perform these concerts.

All ticket holders will be refunded.”

Vesa-Matti Leppänen Director/Violin
Robert Orr Oboe 
Bach Selection from The Art of Fugue
Bach Concerto for Oboe and Violin
Rameau Les Boréades Suite

The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra’s Baroque Series returns with masterpieces from Bach and Rameau.

The Art of Fugue is one of Bach’s most well-known Organ works. Here though, you’ll see and hear the complex and fugal interplay performed in an entirely different way with this arrangement for string orchestra.

Section Principal Oboe Robert Orr and NZSO Concertmaster Vesa-Matti Leppänen are sure to bring their special magic to the intricate interweaving parts of Bach’s Concerto for Oboe and Violin before Rameau’s dramatic, almost Operatic Les Boréades Suite.

In the interest of public health and safety, the Turner Centre requires all staff, volunteers, contractors, performers, suppliers, hirers and audiences to hold current Covid-19 Vaccination Passes.
