This project was made possible with support from the New Zealand School of Music, Victoria University of Wellington

Thanks to Victoria University for funding this project, for providing crucial support for New Zealand musicians and composers, and for creating a platform for this music to reach the general public. Thanks also to Steve Garden for his expert engineering and production work, and to Carolyn van Hoeve for her stunning and stylish design work.

Special thanks to the commissioned composers, without whom this project would not exist, and to producers Peter, Craig, and Cameron for listening, and then listening again to make sure things were on track. Special appreciation and thanks to Christine Moriarty for hosting quartet members during rehearsals and recording sessions.
