National Tour 2019

It’s not long now until we’re coming your way on our 2019 National Tour. This June and July we’re heading up and down the country bringing you two programmes of music that will transport you from the 18th to 21st centuries. We’ll be sharing wonderful works full of captivating melodies and rhythmic poise by MozartHaydnRavel, Dvořák, JanáčekShostakovich, and Chinese-New Zealand composer Gao Ping.

“…the New Zealand String Quartet completely immersed us in a well-chosen, engaging programme featuring a selection of works from Haydn to Dvorak.”
