Chamber Music New Zealand presents Doric String Quartet

"These are performances that make you fall in love with the music all over again." - Gramophone.

This truly is the quartet with the golden touch. Packed houses, first prizes and five stars for every one of their recordings. The Doric String Quartet are best known for the classics. Their recent discs for Chandos focus on Schubert, Schumann, and Korngold, and their debut Haydn disc was marked out for Gramophone "Editor's Choice". These are the very composers they are bringing to NZ, four years after their enormously successful tour with Piers Lane. Formed in 1998, their career was launched by the 1st prize in the Osaka International Chamber Music Competition and they are frequent guests at Wigmore Hall. They also have a strong commitment to contemporary music.

They are including 'Eclipse', a stunning quartet from Australian composer Brett Dean, winner of a number of international awards and focus of a recent 'Composer Portrait' from the Munich Philharmonic. But the heart of the programme is the classics: Haydn's perfect Op 76, and Schubert's epic D887, his last, and one of the most extraordinary things ever written. As Franz Liszt said to Schubert: "Such is the spell of your emotional world that it very nearly blinds us to the greatness of your craftsmanship."

Music fit for a king.

Programme Two
Haydn | String Quartet Op 76 No 6
Brett Dean | Eclipse
Schubert | String Quartet in G D887

At the conclusion of their tour they will adjudicate the National Finals for the NZCT Chamber Music Contest in Christchurch.

Tickets go on sale 25 November 2013.
