Details

Flinders Quartet’s 2019 season opens with Schumann, Haydn and Melbourne’s own Matthew Laing

Matthew Laing was the winner of the Scarlet’s Fund residency award as part of Flinders Quartet’s 2017 Composer Development Program.

Impressed by his unique and engaging concept of sound and gift of musical architecture, the quartet asked Matthew to choose which works best pair with his compositional voice. He chose to have his work programmed with Schumann’s String Quartet No.3 and Haydn’s String Quartet Op.64 No.3; shining a new perspective on these enduring works of the repertoire and using it to place his own work into an historical context.

Presented by Flinders Quartet
