Farr: Owhiro
Featuring New Zealand String Quartet performing the music of Gareth Farr

This album features exclusive recordings of three sparkling and energetic works for string quartet by Gareth Farr, performed by the New Zealand String Quartet. Owhiro (1993), Farr's first string quartet, was written while he was resident in Owhiro Bay in Wellington and composer-in-residence with Chamber Music New Zealand. Mondo Rondo is a highly animated work with clear references to his influence of percussion with hocketting effects and exotic tunes. Frenzy is a high-energy piece with a strong emphasis on rhythm, jaunty phrasing and gritty harmonies.
