    The first of The Arts Centre Chamber Series: Green Doves and Dancing Stars

    Olivier Messiaen’s Harawi is a sumptuous epic for soprano and piano. The first in Messiaen’s “Tristan Trilogy”, Harawi is an ecstatic dive into Andean folk music and a surrealist, colourful exploration of love and death. It is seldom performed live in its entirety, due to the virtuosic challenges to the performers, and Wellington-based musicians Barbara Paterson and Gabriela Glapska have gleefully stepped up to this challenge. By turns earthy and sublime, delicate and volcanic, Harawi is extraordinary music theatre, showcasing two of Aotearoa’s most musically and dramatically exacting performers.
