Inbal Megiddo and Rachel Thomson offer a delightful programme demonstrating the breadth of expression and depth of emotion found in the cello-piano repertoire.
Cellist Inbal Megiddo has performed as soloist with many of the great orchestras and in major concert halls around the world, including recitals at the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Staatsoper in Berlin, and concerto performances with the Berlin Symphony at the Philharmonie. Rachel is a member of various chamber ensembles including the Koru Trio and has worked as an orchestral pianist with the NZSO, Orchestra Wellington, and the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra. She has been a national recording artist for Concert FM and recorded for Trust Records with flutist Bridget Douglas, and she is active as a teacher, adjudicator and accompanist.
In Cello Journey, undertake a musical OE, travelling around the globe in a programme of music that explores different musical cultures, styles and periods. Join the duo as they enjoy the Spanish nightlife with de Falla, glimpse Japanese culture with Salina Fisher, and bask in the Russian countryside with Shostakovich before ending up in the German concert hall with Brahms.
