The “Besser and Prosser” violin and piano duo will be performing a rare public concert in Auckland in October.
Jonathan Besser and Chris Prosser are both well-known composers and instrumentalists. They initially formed their duo in Wellington in the mid 80’s.
They released two L.P’s of original Piano / Violin music on Kiwi Pacific Records (NZ Composers Edition), toured around New Zealand and performed at festivals.
Now – after a long break – the duo will be performing at One 2 One Cafe in Ponsonby on October 20th at 6pm.
Come and hear their original music played by these two unusual composer performers.
Besser describes their repertoire as Jewish influenced and as close to Klezmer as it gets. Improvisation is to the fore and unusual time signatures are extensive.
Prosser says the reason for this concert is to play music for enjoyment’s sake, music that is both exciting and emotional.
The audience is very welcome. The performance is free but koha appreciated.
