New Zealand Night with Witi Ihimaera, Fiona Kidman, and Jason Bae

New Zealand Night with Witi Ihimaera, Fiona Kidman, and Jason Bae

Tuesday 14th June 2016 6:30pm - 8:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Music Event, Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Join us for a special evening of words and music presented by the Australia & New Zealand Festival of Literature & Arts to celebrate two visiting giants of the Kiwi writing scene and a talented young musician.

Witi Ihimaera, already lauded for his novels and short stories (The Matriarch, Tangi, Pounamu Pounamu), secured his international reputation with the hugely successful film adaptation of his novel Whale Rider.  With the recent publication of his childhood memoir Maori Boy, Witi will take us on an enthralling journey through his early years, his ancestors and through Maori history and legend more generally.

Dame Fiona Kidman, truly a grande dame of letters, arrives fresh from the Belfast Festival and the UK launch of The Infinite Air, her novelisation of the life of pioneering aviator (and fellow recipient of the French Legion of Honour) Jean Batten. The fearless Batten, who counted the first ever solo flight from England to New Zealand in 1936 among her many record-breaking solo flying achievements, was also known as ‘the Garbo of the Skies’ for her fashion awareness and reclusive nature.

And to complete the evening, make way for the prodigiously talented Jason Bae. This brilliant young South Korean-born NZ pianist - New Zealand’s first Steinway Young Artist -  has won international acclaim, a series of awards and a dedicated following for the virtuosity and flair of his performances.

The evening is generously hosted by New Zealand’s High Commissioner to London HE The Right Hon Sir Lockwood Smith. 

Words, music and New Zealand wine - a perfect summer evening!

The second concert of the Korean Sounds series features two talented young artists, Jason Bae (piano) and Sulki Yu (violin), performing together with members of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Violinist Sulki Yu enjoys a busy career as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral leader. A prize-winner of the 2006 Yehudi Menuhin and 2007 Szigeti-Hubay International Violin competitions, Sulki studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama with full scholarships under David Takeno. She has appeared as a soloist with many prestigious orchestras, made debut recitals at Wigmore Hall and Southbank Centre to critical acclaim and performed at the BBC Radio 3. A passionate chamber musician, she has been invited to many international chamber music festivals where she has shared the stage with Dong-Suk Kang and Gordon Nikolitch amongst others. In 2009, she formed the Fournier Trio. The trio were awarded the 2013 Parkhouse Award and were winners of the Second prize and Audience prize at the Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition. Sulki currently serves as the Principal First Violin at the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and plays on a beautiful Niccolo Gagliano violin on loan to her.

New Zealand pianist, Jason Bae was born in Daejeon, South Korea in 1991. At the age of twelve, he made his concerto debut with Auckland Symphony Orchestra. Since then, he has performed with Auckland Philharmonia, New Zealand National Youth Symphony, Queensland Symphony and Christchurch Symphony Orchestra. He has also given recitals in the UK, France, the USA, and Australia. Jason was awarded 1st Prize in the 2008 Bradshaw & Buono International Piano Competition in New York. The following year he won 2nd prize at the 2009 Lev Vlassenko International Piano Competition in Brisbane and was selected as the New Zealand Young Performer of the Year. In 2013 he was awarded 1st Prize in the 2013 New Zealand Inaugural Wallace Piano Competition. Last year, he received his Master of Arts in piano performance with the highest distinction award, DipRAM, from the Royal Academy of Music in London under the tutelage of Christopher Elton and Joanna MacGregor. Jason is New Zealand’s first Young Steinway Artist since 2012.

Known as the Nation’s Favourite and one of the finest Orchestras in the world, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) has toured globally, performing in the most prestigious concert venues with some of the greatest soloists and conductors of our time. Under the inspiring leadership of Principal Conductor Charles Dutoit, the RPO has often received praise for delivering the highest quality as well as variety of music. In October 2015, whilst performing the opera The Trojans in Geneva, five like-minded members of the RPO came together with their love for playing chamber music. These members have travelled from all over the world: Sulki Yu from South Korea, Shana Douglas from the US, Michelle Bruil from the Netherlands, Chian Lim from Singapore and Roberto Sorrentino from the UK. Thus the ‘Odyssey Ensemble’ was created, depicting the individual Odysseys of the members and their harmonious formation to produce beautiful chamber music.
