Andrew Joyce & Jian Liu: Renowned New Zealand-based musicians Andrew Joyce and Jian Liu have crafted an ambitious programme that celebrates their musical and cultural heritages. Showcasing music for cello and piano from the UK, China, and NZ, the virtuosic duo brings a colourful assortment of melodies for the first half, followed by a larger Romantic sonata by Brahms for the latter half of the programme. Before joining the NZSO as Principal Cellist in 2010, UK-born Andrew Joyce played regularly with the London Symphony and London Philharmonic Orchestras, and toured the world’s great concert halls as Guest Principal. He joins forces with internationally-acclaimed concert pianist Dr Jian Liu, who is currently the Programme Director of Classical Performance and Head of Piano Studies at the New Zealand School of Music—Te Kōkī. Although the pair have played together in chamber ensembles, this is their first collaboration as a duo.
