About the event

The New Zealand String Quartet bring a programme of fresh and familiar classical works to the Jam Factory. 

As part of their 2024 season, Soundscapes, the NZSQ is taking chamber music outside of the traditional   concert hall to explore the way music connects us with our surroundings. From eco-sanctuaries to art galleries, to cozy and eclectic music venues, imaginative programmes collide headfirst with unique spaces creating epic, multi-sensory experiences.     

The New Zealand String Quartet recently welcomed a wonderful new musician to the ensemble, violinist Peter Clark. This concert is one of his first   performing with the Quartet as second violinist. Come along to give Peter a big NZSQ welcome!    

Concert Programme:  

Haydn - String Quartet Op. 71 No. 3 in E flat major     

Janáček - String Quartet No. 1 "The Kreutzer Sonata"    

Interval     

Leonie Holmes - Fragment II  

Shostakovich - String Quartet No. 2, A major, op. 68   

Whether you're a classical music fan or looking to try something new this   concert is not to be missed.  

No Need to be an Expert:

The concert programme, crafted in the NZSQ’s signature style, aims to engage audiences of all levels of familiarity with chamber music. Each piece of music is preceded by a lively and informative introduction delivered by the Quartet members themselves. These introductions seek to shed light on the stories behind the music, making it an enriching experience suitable for all audiences.
