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

Robert Orr Oboe
Bach Selection from the Art of Fugue
Bach Concerto for Oboe and Violin in D
Rameau Les Boréades Suite
The NZSO’s popular 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.
