Korutet String Quartet
Korutet is an established string quartet based in Auckland, New Zealand that was formed in 2012. It is made up of four young NZ musicians who have an ambition to perform and promote contemporary classical music, with the goal of reaching a wider audience and breaking down conventional elitist perceptions of Classical music. All of the members of the group are graduates of University level performance music, and are each successful musicians in their own right. The name Korutet is a play on the word ‘quartet’, (substituting ‘Quar’ with ‘Koru’). The New Zealand "Koru" bears a striking resemblance to the scroll of a stringed instrument.
