Revolution

Huon Quartet

Details

Featuring thrilling works by Shostakovich, Pérotin, Henry and Ravel

Paying homage to Russia and France, two countries where social, political and economic unrest fueled great artistic creation, Tasmania’s Huon Quartet weaves a thrilling program around two ‘revolutionary’ works by string quartet masters, Shostakovich and Ravel.

The concise and intense Quartet No.7 by Shostakovich, a piece comparable to a diamond in its purity and brilliance, will be contrasted with Ravel’s luscious and passionate Quartet in F; full of colour and excitement. The program will also include an arrangement of 12th century French master Perotin’s beautiful Viderunt Omnes. Finally, to complete program, the quartet can’t wait to ‘show off’ a new work by their dear friend, Melbourne’s unbelievably clever Tom Henry.
