A Knight with A Dame: New Shows Added


A Knight with A Dame

The most prestigious and entertaining concert event of 2006




PLUS: The (2006) Howard Morrison Quartet featuring Sir Howard, Jerry Merito, Howard Jr and Temuera Morrison
PLUS: Masterful violinist Ben Morrison - 19 years
PLUS: Sensational new 18-year-old artist Elizabeth Marvelly (personally selected by Dame Malvina)
And a specially assembled group of leading New Zealand musicians

Due to overwhelming demand, new shows have been added to the prestigious tour by two of our best-loved entertainers Sir Howard and Dame Malvina.

Tickets will go on sale on Saturday for new concerts in Sir Howard's home town of Rotorua, and New Plymouth will now enjoy a second concert, with the first selling out in days!

Producer Ian Magan says: “Sir Howard is delighted to be able to bring this fabulous concert tour home. It will also be special for Dame Malvina's protege Elizabeth Marvelly, from Rotorua too.

"It is wonderful that New Zealand has embraced this tour in the way they have, especially as it marks the end of Sir Howard’s testimonial year, celebrating 50 years in entertainment, and his seventieth year on this earth – not to mention also Dame Malvina’s 50th year also as a professional singer and entertainer."

Tickets on sale at Ticketek and Ticket Direct Special Group and Seniors’ concessions will also be available in most centres.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
