New Zealand String Quartet

The New Zealand String Quartet was founded in 1987 and has forged a major path in the busy international chamber music field. The Quartet has distinguished itself through imaginative programming, insightful interpretations of the string quartet repertoire including cycles of composers’ music from Mozart to Berg, and the development of an international audience for important new works from New Zealand composers.

The mission is to provide transformational chamber music experiences that reflect Aotearoa New Zealand's unique diversity and cultural fabric to the world and they aim to reimagine what a classical string quartet can be for all New Zealanders in the 21st Century.

Dedicated teachers as well as performers, the New Zealand String Quartet members teach individual lessons, conduct string classes, and coach chamber music ensembles. They have been Quartet-in-Residence at Victoria University Wellington since 1991.
