Acclaimed Melbourne string quartet Quartz unites violinists Kathryn Taylor and Philippa West, violist Merewyn Bramble and cellist Zoe Wallace in refreshing concerts of classical and contemporary repertoire.
Quartz heroes two masters of emotion, composers Haydn and Tchaikovsky, in works of lush excitement. Listen closely to hear ripples of laughter in Haydn’s Russian Quartet No.2, aptly nicknamed ‘The Joke’. And experience Tchaikovsky’s melodic Quartet No.1, featuring one of classical music’s treasured works, his Andante Cantabile, which is said to have moved Leo Tolstoy to tears.
