Violist Donald Maurice is joined by violinist Amelia Taylor and pianist Elizabeth Lau for a one-hour concert of music by NZ composers Douglas Lilburn, Anthony Ritchie and Alfred Hill, and Hungarian and Russian gems by Béla Bartók and Dmitri Shostakovich.
These are rarely heard pieces and give the opportunity to experience the beauty of the viola in interesting combinations of instruments.
Donald Maurice has performed internationally for four decades as a solo violist and chamber musician and has given world premieres and New Zealand premieres of many works.
He has presented at twenty International Viola Congresses. He was awarded the Silver Alto Clef by the International Viola Society in 2000, was made an Honorary Life Member of the American Viola Society in 2007, and in 2009 he gave the William Primrose Memorial Concert in Utah.
He has performed for New Zealand diplomatic missions in Washington DC, New York, Ottawa, Berlin, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Warsaw. In 2014 he was made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit.
