In this concert, the New Zealand String Quartet is joined by acclaimed pianist Nicola Melville — also originally from New Zealand — who has been on the faculty of Chautauqua’s School of Music Piano Program for over 20 years and currently serves as the program’s co-chair. Her live performances and recordings have been broadcast on Canadian, U.S., New Zealand, South African, and Chinese radio, and she has collaborated with members of the Kronos, PUBLIQuartet, and JACK quartets, and with members of the Detroit, Chicago, Cleveland, Minnesota, and Saint Paul Chamber orchestras.
