The Black Quartet

Auckland String Quartet

Unrivalled as New Zealand’s premier string quartet, The Black Quartet are a versatile group of talented young musicians, offering a contemporary take on this classic ensemble style. The calibre of their musicianship is matched by the cool, contemporary style and attitude they bring to their craft.

The Black Quartet have collaborated with the likes of Kanye West, Six60 and Ladyhawke, appeared in television commercials and accompanied Hayley Westernra, performed at Christmas in the Park and Rhythm and Vines, toured the world and composed for some of the world’s biggest brands.
