August Concert

Lorelle McNaughton


New Zealand pianist Lorelle McNaughton carries a wide breadth of knowledge and experience after years of tertiary study in New Zealand, Australia, and Europe. She has performed extensively across the globe and was recently invited to perform at the 'Oceania' Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. After ten years living abroad, Lorelle has returned to New Zealand to continue her successful career.

Mulled Wine Concerts will present Lorelle McNaughton in Paekakariki's Memorial Hall on Sunday August 14 at 2:30 PM. Lorelle has been particularly commended for her inspired interpretation of the Spanish piano repertoire.

She lived in Spain for three years and completed a Master of Spanish Music in Barcelona gaining an invaluable insight into the works of the great Spanish composers. An aficionado of the vibrant and passionate art form of flamenco which emerged from the gypsy quarters of Southern Spain, she says "during my time in Spain, teachers thought I must've been a gypsy in a former life!"

On the programme will be French composer Claude Debussy's "Estampes" and Isaac Albéniz's Book Three of "Iberia". The Spanish theme continues with Four Spanish Pieces by the Andalusian composer and pianist, Manuel de Falla followed by the expressive music of the Catalan composer Frederic Mompou. Maurice Ravel's "Une Barque sur l'Ocean" and "Alborada del Gracioso" from Miroirs will round off the afternoon.

While looking forward to performing for local audiences, Lorelle hopes to inspire listeners to explore more of this wonderfully colourful and evocative music. Bringing a breath of warm Spanish sunshine to the Kapiti Coast in midwinter, this will be a concert to delight everyone.
