    Event description

    This May the New Zealand Guitar Quartet will give its first public performance in New Zealand since 2019, after several years hiatus brought on by a combination of border closures and the traumatic injury of founding member Jane Curry. NZGQ members Owen Moriarty, John Couch and Vladimir Gorbach have regrouped with internationally award-winning guitarist Andrew Blanch, as they head back onto the concert stage and release their latest album this year.

    This concert (including four NZ premieres) will feature music from the recording and showcases new works written (or arranged) exclusively for the NZGQ by several of today’s leading composers including local star Michael Williams, Gary Ryan (England), Polina Nazaykinskaya (New York), Vincent Lindsey-Clark (England), Marek Pasieczny (Poland), and several arrangements by Owen Moriarty.

     “with this magnificent new album, they (NZGQ) prove without a doubt that they are now masters of their own destiny and in the top echelon of ensembles.”
