CMNZ Presents: Klara Kollektiv


In Swedish, the term “klara” means to clarify. Playing music of crystalline radiance, The Klara Kollektiv is an exciting new ensemble. Established in 2016 as an extension of the Darlecarlia Clarinet Quintet, the Kollektiv is dedicated to shining a light on new repertoire as well as sharing familiar favourites. Bringing Aotearoa and Scandinavia just a little closer together, these three Sweden-based musicians return home to perform a programme of atmospheric New Zealand and European wonders. The programme begins with the premiere of a new work by New Zealand composer Anthonie Ritchie, while the colourful, gypsy rhapsodies of Khachaturian’s youthful Trio perfectly complement the mesmerizing, poetic Hungarian dances of Bartók’s Contrasts. "…A wistful romantic spirit is afoot here, a sense of yearning that the musicians catch in pliant, arching phrases; elsewhere, the highly charged give-and-take between the five players is the mark of collegial chamber music at its best.” - (Darlecarlia Quintet Album Review), New Zealand Herald, William Dart
