Since their inception in 2003, the Jade Quartet have commissioned and premiered many NZ works by the likes of David Hamilton and Chris Adams, both of whom are on today’s programme with Haydn and. Schubert. Jade has a CD of New Zealand works on the RATTLE label and two national tours in 2007 and 2009 as well as a concert series over six years at the Pah Homestead and other venues.
