Black Sheep Farm, Country Homestead B&B is delighted to announce their next House Concert, The “Villani Piano Quartet”.

Flavio Villani (the pianist featured in the film Crossing Rachmaninoff) who performed at Black Sheep Farm last May is returning with his Quartet, that has been playing together since the end of 2015.

This ensemble is the result of previous collaborations between the four players in various combinations. After years of studying and performing in Europe, including gaining their Masters in Chamber Music, Sarah Spence and Marko Pop Ristov moved to Auckland where they met playing as principals with the newly formed "Wairua Sinfonietta". They have joined forces with established Auckland musicians Flavio Villani and Helen Bevin to create an ensemble.

With home and international experience, the Villani Piano Quartet has come together with a drive to present the unique richness of the piano quartet experience and to promote chamber music to audiences of all ages. The Piano Quartet’s inaugural year saw the group perform to critical acclaim in the main centres of the North Island from Kerikeri to Wellington in collaboration with Chamber Music New Zealand, as well as build audiences at home in Auckland.

For 2018, through collaborative work, the Villani Piano Quartet commits to bringing new and exciting repertoire to the stage, as well as newly converted music lovers to the auditorium.

This is a unique opportunity to experience the Quartet in the intimate concert lounge of the Homestead.
