The Doric String Quartet
Tuesday, 29 July 2014

by John Button, The Dominion Post

We heard the Doric String Quartet back in 2010, and now, with a new viola player, they initially seemed to play much the same. Back then, as now, they opened with a Haydn quartet - and, as then, they offered playing that was neat and technically accomplished but rather lacking in the wit and theatre that abounds in Haydn.
