The Baroque Music Community and Educational Trust of New Zealand began with Tomas Hurnik, a cellist who had moved from the Czech Republic to live in Christchurch New Zealand. His passion was Baroque music, but there was no existing Baroque Music scene on the South Island. Thus he began bringing musicians from Europe and other areas of New Zealand together to perform and tour New Zealand under the name Beautiful World of Baroque Music. His intention was always to offer the highest quality of Baroque music and educate amateurs and professionals alike in the art and beauty of authentic Baroque interpretation. This tradition has continued to this day with yearly concerts, workshops and tours.

This year the tour will be featuring Brandon Labadie on oboe d’amore from the USA, who will perform with the international string and harpsichord ensemble in authentic baroque style on period instruments. The Rippon Hall is proud to host this unique programme featuring the ‘oboe of love’ performing beautiful music by Bach, Handel, Vivaldi, Pachelbel and others.
