About the event

Art meets string quartet at Webb’s Auction House.   

Surrounded by a curated exhibition, the New Zealand String Quartet (NZSQ) will bring the art into a new dimension with a programme of fresh and familiar classical works. 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 community centres, 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!   

Whether you're a classical music fan, an art enthusiast, or simply looking   for a memorable night out, this concert is not to be missed.       

Concert Programme:    

Leonie Holmes - Fragment II     

Beethoven - String Quartet No. 16 in F major, Op. 135     

Interval     

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

Schulhoff - Five Pieces for String Quartet  

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.
