This masterfully curated, tapas style menu of music has been a festival highlight for two years running. Enjoy a programme of single movements, like a vibrant, piquant tasting platter of music from Spain, Argentina, Brazil, and beyond. Works by Ravel, Piazzolla, and Cassadó will be ‘served’ alongside fresh toe-tapping local delicacies by kiwis Claire Cowan and Alex Taylor.
Here are some audience responses from last year’s debut of Exotica:
‘Absolutely wonderful … riveting … intimate … joyful … brilliant … inspired’
Joining Ashley are violinist Andrew Beer (APO Concertmaster) and pianist Stephen De Pledge. This powerhouse ensemble of New Zealand’s best have each played extensively throughout North America,
Europe, Asia and Australasia, with performances broadcast on TV and radio networks worldwide, and have multiple recordings and accolades to their names.
