A significant aspect of the work of the NZCS is the teaching of solo instrumental and chamber music pedagogy. The NZCS regularly present master classes focusing on solo and chamber music performance and technique. They have also produced recordings under the music label Atoll.
As lecturers past and present at the University of Waikato Conservatorium of Music, the New Zealand Chamber Soloists are committed to developing the next generation of performance musicians through a performance-rich curriculum. As a result, many students have won national and international competitions.
The New Zealand Chamber Soloists are dedicated to presenting classical music as a spontaneous and vivid experience. They celebrate the unique voice of New Zealand’s new generation of composers, alongside the works of the classical and 20th-century traditions.
The NZCS Midday Concert programme includes Haydn’s Trio in E major Hob XVI:28, Shostakovich’s Piano Trio no. 1 in C minor and Schumann’s Trio no. 1 in D minor.
