This event takes place at Montsalvat Bar Gallery
Shostakovich; through the lens of the string quartet.
In a unique concept, Flinders Quartet explore Shostakovich’s life through a prism of his string quartets.
Inspired by Wendy Lesser’s book Music for Silenced Voices, this program will explore the life of Shostakovich through selections from his fifteen string quartets, and follows his relationship with The Beethoven Quartet; his muse for most of his string quartet writing. Be prepared for something a little left of centre.
