Australian String Quartet

For over 30 years, the Australian String Quartet (ASQ) has created unforgettable string quartet performances for national and international audiences.

Dedicated to musical excellence with a distinctly Australian character, their purpose is to create chemistry and amplify intimacy through experiences that connect people with string quartet music. Their distinct sound is enhanced by a matched set of 18th-century Guadagnini instruments handcrafted by the Italian master craftsman Giovanni Battista Guadagnini between 1743 and 1784.
