Join the New Zealand String Quartet for a concert of groundbreaking works that have each taken the quartet genre in new directions.

Mozart’s String Quartet in C, K465, acquired the nickname “Dissonance” several years after his death, undoubtedly due to the extraordinary harmonic boldness of the first movement’s slow introduction. Despite its title, this quartet is one of Mozart’s most brilliant and high-spirited works.

Complementing the Mozart is Debussy’s colouristic Quartet in G minor, celebrating the centenary of its composition in 1918. NZSQ cellist Rolf Gjelsten says: "We’re looking forward to sharing with you the genius and vision of these works as well as elucidating the qualities which make each work so remarkable.

Programme:
Mozart: String Quartet No. 19 in C Major, K. 465 (“Dissonance”)
Debussy: String Quartet in G minor, Op. 10
