The next Sunday (10.03.19) after our return from Australia, we brought the same programme back to the people in New Zealand with some slight additions.
In this concert we added two more pieces to the programme, which was Jettatura by John Psathas and Questioning the Mountain by Gao Ping and was privileged to make the New Zealand premiere performance of Elena Kats-Chernin's Out of the Blue on this date.
The concert was held on the 10th which is the day before the Tohoku Earthquake & Tsunami happened in 2011, so we performed Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence for our encore as a tribute.
