The Jade String Quartet will be making their first visit to Waikanae as part of a nation-wide Chamber Music New Zealand tour. The Quartet, formed in 2003, are committed to the performance of great music whether it be old masterpieces or new works. They have a CD of New Zealand works on the Rattle label, they have toured for Chamber Music New Zealand and they have their own concert series, “Jade at the Pah”. Based in Auckland, they have won a special place in NZ’s music scene as a group that can cater for both young and old, traditional and modern tastes alike. Three of the quartet’s members (violinists Miranda Adams and William Hanfling with Robert Ashworth - viola) hold principal positions in the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra. German cellist Edith Salzmann, in high demand internationally as a teacher, soloist, and chamber musician, is a Senior Lecturer in Music at the University of Auckland.

Their programme opens with selections from Haydn’s Seven Last Words of Christ, one of the composer’s most profound works, commissioned in 1786 for the Good Friday service in Cádiz, Spain. The second half of the programme features a truly iconic work for string quartet, Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden” which has been described as “one of the pillars of the chamber music repertoire”. It is named after the composer’s own song which has lent its theme to the second movement.

Door sales will be available for this concert, or tickets can be bought at Waikanae New World, Moby Dickens Books (Paraparaumu Beach) or from the website Telephone enquiries to 0212517030. This concert is presented in association with Chamber Music New Zealand. The CMNZ Regional Series is supported by the Deane Endowment Trust Artist Development Fund.
