New Zealand Guitar Quartet

The sound worlds created by the New Zealand Guitar Quartet are nothing less than extraordinary, and made possible by the virtuoso abilities of each guitarist and their superb ensemble playing.

...the ensemble's rendition of the individual lines brought so many deliciously-phrased strands of delight together with impeccable balance and osmotic teamwork.

The works they chose were varied and accessible, ranging from a Bach Brandenburg Suite to a new piece by New Zealander Kaisa Beech. The audience response to each piece was enormously enthusiastic, and the concert culminated in foot-stomping requests for encores.
