Hammers & HorsehairNext year marks a century since New Zealand-born soprano Rosina Buckman undertook an epic homecoming tour. In Rosina's entourage were cellist Adelina Leon and pianist-composer Percy Kahn. They performed more than 110 concerts to capacity audiences the length and breadth of New Zealand and Australia over a period of ten months.
One hundred years later, the well-known soprano Rowena Simpson joins the established Hammers & Horsehair duo, pianist Douglas Mews and cellist Robert Ibell, to present a vivid reimagining of that 1922 tour in a salon concert called Homecoming.
