The New Zealand String Quartet, an artist ensemble in residence at NZSM, present a concert in the weekly lunchtime concert series, at the NZSM Concert Hall on the NZSM Mt Cook Campus.
The concert will be a rare opportunity to hear two masterpieces:

~ Bartok's shortest and most tightly constructed string quartet, his 3rd, which typically draws on Hungarian folk melodies and
~ Brahms' great string quintet in G major, with its jubilant opening Allegro and noble Adagio, haunting Scherzo and folk-like Vivace, where the NZSQ is joined by esteemed viola professor from Rice University, Ivo van der Werff.

Ivo-Jan van der Werff has attained accolades as a chamber player, recitalist, guest artist and teacher throughout Europe and North America. As a member of the Medici String Quartet for 28 years, Mr van der Werff has performed in over 2,000 concerts in major festivals and venues world wide, broadcasting regularly on radio and television. The Medici quartet made more than 40 recordings for EMI, Nimbus, Hyperion and Koch, and won many awards for works ranging from Haydn, Britten, Janacek, Schubert and the Beethoven cycle to more eclectic works of Saint-Saens, Wajahat Khan and Nigel Osborne. The quartet had collaborations with many artists across the musical, literary and theatrical spectrum including the Royal Shakespeare Company, George Martin, Alan Bennett, John Williams, John Thaw and Jack Brymer.

The concert is free and all are welcome.
