AOTNZ tours New Zealand Guitar Quartet – 22 June - 21 July 2019
The New Zealand Guitar Quartet bring an infectious energy to the stage!
Fresh from concert tours in China and Australia and 2018 engagements at the prestigious Guitar Foundation of America Convention and Guitarromania in Mexico, they’ve released two CDs, both featuring commissioned works by Australian and New Zealand composers, as well as original arrangements by Owen Moriarty.
Besides Owen, Jane Curry and John Couch, the quartet has a new member, internationally acclaimed guitarist Vladimir Gorbach.
Their performances of classical, contemporary and world music continue to engage audiences from all walks of life, exploring a diverse range of genres including Balkan, Brazilian, Persian, bluegrass, Celtic, Spanish and flamenco music.
Some comments from their AOTNZ tour in 2017:
“Wow they were wonderful!!!..Not only incredible musicians but so professional and engaging”--Featherston
“Amazing display of technical virtuosity with beautifully chosen programme of new and well known works. Great stage presence and rapport with the audience. …Wonderful and charming musicians.” – Balcairn
“Outstanding.” – Geraldine
