Music and Words
Alex Ross with Bianca Andrew & STROMA
Literature & music come together in this unique concert. New York Times critic and best-selling author of “The Rest is Noise”, is coming to Aotearoa for this very special tour, in partnership with the Auckland Writers Festival.
Alex Ross shares the stage with mezzo-soprano Bianca Andrew and NZ’s preeminent modern music ensemble STROMA, with one mission: to dispel the elitist aura that often surrounds modernist and post-modernist masterpieces, allowing audiences to share in his passion for this repertoire.
Keep an eye out for our programme notes, available on our website ahead of the concert.
