Music Alive for Tuesday 5 May 2015
Acclaimed as demonstrating "accomplished brilliance, soulfulness and sublime intensity in perfect balance and tonal unity" (The Dominion Post), the Aroha String Quartet is firmly established as one of the finest chamber music ensembles at the forefront of New Zealand chamber music.
Alongside their busy schedule of orchestral and teaching duties, the members of Aroha are committed to presenting string quartet works from traditional Chinese folk music to western classical and avant-garde repertoire.
The Quartet performs regularly around NZ in centres from the Deep South to the Far North. Overseas trips have seen them participate in the prestigious International Summer Academy in Austria, and they’ve given concerts and masterclasses in China.
