About the event

New Zealand String Quartet’s 2023 National Tour, ‘Woven Pathways’, promises to be an unforgettable musical adventure. This extraordinary journey unfolds through four carefully crafted programmes, each offering a unique exploration of the human experience. Audiences in Hamilton will be treated to spiritual and peaceful works composed for string quartet and taonga pūoro. We are honoured to be sharing the stage with our friend and eminent taonga pūoro player, Horomona Horo, for this concert.

Programme Four: Connection | Spirited conversations between string quartet and taonga pūoro.

Opening: improvisation 

Phil Brownlee/Ariana Tikao Manaaki 

Schubert String Quartet in A Minor D804 “Rosamunde” 

Gillian Whitehead Hine-pū-te-hue

With the Quartet and Horomona Horo as steady guides, let the music lead you on a life affirming journey through the peaks and troughs of the human condition. ‘Woven Pathways’ contains something for all levels of chamber music enthusiast - whether you’re a seasoned explorer or just beginning your chamber music journey.

** This programme is approximately 80 minutes long with no interval **

2023 marks the 22nd season of the New Zealand String Quartet's annual National Tour, our flagship series which sees us traverse the breadth and depth of Aotearoa. Each year we perform a series of carefully curated programmes meditating on a central theme. These programmes are composed of a heady mix of classical favourites and edgy contemporary works, and all include pieces by New Zealand composers. Our National Tour is proudly supported by our Principal Sponsor, The Turnovsky Endowment Trust, and Creative New Zealand.
