Music Alive for Tuesday 7 July 2015
In 1974, three young New Zealanders arrived in London to study at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and were looking for a flat. Flutist Barbara Hill, viola player Donald Maurice and clarinettist Debbie Rawson ended up moving in together with a couple of other music students. Fast-forward 40 years and those three young musicians have become established artists and teachers.
Together with NZSM piano lecturer Jian Liu they will present a highly unusual programme featuring masterworks for wind, string and piano combinations.
