New Zealand String QuartetNotes From a Journey

2011 CD from the New Zealand String Quartet named from the title of a poem by Sam Hunt. Notes From A Journey is a diverse and fascinating collection of works for string quartet by New Zealand composers. All of these composers “journeyed” in some way to find their inspiration. John Psathas turned to the writings of Buddhist guru Chögyam Trungpa for ‘Abhisheka’; Jack Body traveled to the hear the musics of China, Madagascar and Bulgaria for ‘Three Transcriptions’, Ross Harris went back through time to the music of Bach’s ‘Goldberg Variations’ for his ‘Variation 25’, Michael Norris explores death through Inuit, Mayan, Norse and Native American cultures in the four movements of ‘Exitus’ and Gareth Farr and Richard Nunns, who collaborated to create ‘He Poroporoaki’, took this short compelling farewell for string quartet and Taonga Puoro to the home of its inspiration, Gallipoli, for its premiere. The depth, eloquence and diversity in this collection of works, shows that New Zealand composers feel free to draw upon an enormous range of influences and that they are working in a global context.
