This event takes place at Montsalvat Barn Gallery
Chinese Er-Hu is brilliantly matched with the European tradition of the string quartet and recorder in Flinders Quartet’s final concert for their 2019 season.
While separated by geography and history, the musical colours of contemporary Chinese sensation, Zhao Zhang and Debussy’s works illustrate the way music is able to unite cultures.
Both quintessentially nationalistic in their own ways, the similarities between the two works on this program are far more striking than their differences.
Translations more than proves the cliché that music is a universal language. This concert places a focus on using the music of the string quartet as a shared language between East and West.
