Dominion String Quartet

Yury Gezentsvey, violin I
Rosemary Harris, violin II
Donald Maurice, viola
David Chickering, cello

The Dominion String Quartet was formed in 2006, taking its name from the centenary of the creation of the dominion of New Zealand in 1907. This event coincided with the Christchurch International Exhibition of 1906–07 at which Alfred Hill was the conductor of the country’s first full-time professional orchestra. His seventeen string quartets provided the perfect initial project for the DSQ as they are not only the first significant examples of the string quartet genre from Australasia, but are also very fine works of international stature. Yury Gezentsvey (first violin), originally from Russia, is a principal first violinist with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, an acclaimed soloist and chamber musician and artist teacher at the New Zealand School of Music. Rosemary Harris (second violin), previously associate concertmaster of the Nashville Symphony Orchestra and a first violinist in the Pittsburgh Symphony, plays regularly with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. Donald Maurice (viola) is professor at the New Zealand School of Music, and has been a regular performer and lecturer at International Viola Congresses for over two decades. David Chickering (cello), originally from the United States and formerly a member of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, is former principal cellist of the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.
