Formed in 2010 at the NZ School of Music, the New Zealand Guitar Quartet is quickly developing a following around the country with invitations to perform both locally and overseas. Owen Moriarty, Tim Watanabe, Christopher Hill and Jane Curry have garnered acclaim as soloists on concert stages around the world and in a multitude of international guitar competitions, and each member contributes towards creating an exciting, dynamic and engaging ensemble.
Their programme showcases their best repertoire, from arrangements of favourites by Bach and Rimsky-Korsakov, to 20th century guitar stars Leo Brouwer from Cuba and American composer Ian Krouse, as well as Kiwi composer Craig Utting.The chameleon quality of the classical guitar comes out in the pieces by prolific Brazilian composer Paulo Bellinati and Afro-Cuban star Carlos Rafael Rivera.
