Wings of Song



Melbourne’s own Flinders Quartet is instantly recognisable as one of Australia’s most loved chamber music ensembles giving dynamic performances of a full spectrum of repertoire with the Quartet’s gripping interpretations of the string quartet masterpieces described as having an ‘intense clarity’.

Mozart’s genius of his much-loved string quartet K.464 gives way to an arrangement of Mendelssohn Songs by Flinders Quartet emerging composer, John Rotar which in turn sets the scene for his energising V Vecernih, a short work that brought the house down at the Quartet’s inaugural composer workshop concert in 2016. Beethoven’s Op.135 never fails to astound audiences with its profundity and timeless relevance.

Join Flinders Quartet for a post-concert wine tasting.
