Artist New Zealand String Quartet
Celebrating its 35th season, the New Zealand String Quartet has established an international reputation for its insightful interpretations, compelling communication, and dynamic performing style. The Quartet is known for its imaginative programming and for its powerful connection with audiences of all kinds.
The group’s extensive discography includes the complete quartets of Mendelssohn, Bartok, Berg, Brahms, Janacek and Lilburn on the Naxos label, works by Ravel, Debussy, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Dvorak, Wolf, Tan Dun, Takemitsu, Gao Ping, and Zoltan Szekely as well as many NZ compositions.
The Quartet tours regularly in the UK, Europe and North America as well as to Mexico, Curaçao, Japan, Korea, and China, and made many visits to Australia, including the festivals in Townsville and Canberra.
As Quartet-in-Residence and teachers at the New Zealand School of Music Te Kōkī at Victoria University of Wellington since 1991, as well as running two intensive chamber music courses annually, the Quartet has had a profound effect on generations of New Zealand’s string players and composers.
