Celebrating its 35th Season in 2022, 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.
Programme 2 sweeps from the sounds of late Mozart to contemporary NZ composer Louise Webster’s nostalgic this memory of earth. Following Shostakovich’s emotive and impassioned String Quartet No. 11 is Mendelssohn’s String Quartet Op. 13, No. 2– an irresistible finale.
