Through its concert series, festival appearances and creative collaborations with different performers and composers, the Enigma Quartet has established a reputation for fine technique, intelligent interpretations and dynamic performance style.
The quartet members Marianne Broadfoot (violin), Kerry Martin (violin), Shelley Soerensen (viola) and Rowena Macneish (‘cello) perform music with an effortless rapport and a warm stage presence developed over their ten years together. Joining them in this concert for a quintet performance is well-known ‘cellist Tim Nankervis.
In this concert, the performers take the audience on a compelling musical journey. It begins in the idyllic countryside conjured by the hunting horn themes and sunny melodies of Mozart’s Hunt quartet. It strides across the new world of Dvořák’s American quartet with energy and excitement. It scales the majestic peaks of Schubert’s quintet to reveal an emotional landscape of intense beauty and power.
