Flinders Quartet’s 2020 20th anniversary season opens with Schubert, Webern, and Beethoven’s satisfyingly epic Op.130
‘Satisfyingly epic’ is the best way to describe Beethoven’s String Quartet Op.130, while Schubert’s singular movement Quartettsatz is a tantalising episode. In this exploration between macro and micro, Flinders Quartet interplay scale and form in a thought-provoking and moving curation.
On discovering Derek Brookes through their Composer Development Program in 2018, Flinders Quartet immediately thought to pair his first string quartet with Webern’s Six Bagatelles. Brookes’ composition is based on stunning haiku text and to accentuate this innovative pairing, FQ thought to use the fleeting sounds of Webern’s Six Bagatelles as a catalyst for the creation of new haiku poems.
‘Playing Beethoven String Quartets has always been the most spiritual experience that I have in my life. When I descend into the music everything else disappears and it seems as if the music explains everything that is important about being alive and human.’ Helen Ireland, viola
