Event details

Flinders Quartet is immediately recognisable as Melbourne’s string quartet.

It is an internationally respected force in chamber music, championing contemporary relevance and art-form regeneration. Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2020, Flinders Quartet inspires a love of string quartet music through masterful live performances.

In a program of beloved classical masterpieces, Flinders Quartet continues its association with the much-loved and insanely talented Lloyd Van’t Hoff (clarinet). Completing its 20th birthday celebrations with its favourite Beethoven string quartet, the Op.132, Flinders Quartet promises to deliver these pinnacles of the string quartet repertoire in a style all of its own.
