Flinders Quartet at Monslavat

Death and the Maiden


Please note, this concert takes place at Monslavat


Flinders Quartet performs works by Schubert and Richard Mills in Death and the Maiden

Flinders Quartet’s Schubert year continues with Death and the Maiden, performing a Richard Mills’ delightful ‘Glimpses from my book of Dada’, Calvin Bowman’s arrangements of a selection of songs from ‘Winterreise’, and Schubert’s incredible ‘Death and the Maiden’ quartet.

Each of the works in this concert program tell vivid, fantastical stories. From latte drinking airheads to a little girl having a conversation with Death, the myriad of colours produced by the string quartet are the perfect narrative tool. Calvin Bowman re-imagines Schubert’s seminal work ‘Winterreise’ with these colours in mind, celebrating Schubert’s ongoing relevance and influence in 21st century Australia.
