Kiwa Quartet

Kiwa Quartet

Waitaki Arts Festival presents:

The Kiwa Quartet was formed in 2015 by Malavika Gopal as part of a project supported by a Professional Development Grant awarded to her by the NZSO. The Quartet's aim is to present the core masterpieces of the repertoire side by side with contemporary and ethnic music. Their programme includes quartets from Beethoven and Tchaikovsky alongside the music of New Zealand's Gareth Farr and a brief taste of the American minimalist composer John Adams.

Members of the quartet have widely diverse international backgrounds. Originally from Wellington, Malavika Gopal studied in Auckland, Boston and then Switzerland with numerous successes before returning to New Zealand to join the NZSO.

Alan Molina comes to us via Indiana, San Francisco and the New World Symphony, followed by the Charleston Symphony before moving to New Zealand.

Cellist Ken Ichinose began his musical journey in London, followed by extensive solo and chamber performances throughout Europe and orchestral experience with the Philharmonia Orchestra and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields. He is now Associate Principal Cello with the NZSO.

Sophia Acheson, from Christchurch, studied in Wellington, Barcelona and the US. She is now principal violist of Orchestra Wellington while pursuing her interest in early music and chamber music.
