ArtistsNew Zealand String Quartet
The New Zealand String Quartet (NZSQ) has been the country’s leading chamber ensemble, with a distinguished catalogue of acclaimed recordings. Among these releases included Brahms String Quartets (8573433 and 8573454) in which a Fanfare reviewer exclaimed: ‘These are absolutely scorchinghot, searing performances… These players are so disciplined, [and] so technically accomplished…that the sound they make is without a single blemish.’
NZSQ’s album of Alban Berg’s and Hugo Wolf’s pieces (8557374) also received high praise from ClassicsToday.com: ‘as you listen to these works afresh, you not only marvel at the individual players’ virtuosity, but you also have to appreciate that the relatively warm yet pleasingly “edgy” quality to the sound and the oneness of spirit in the interpretations come from the highest-order functioning of the well-integrated collective parts of a mature, vital body’. (10/10)
