Puccini, Beethoven and the premiere of a new work by Deborah Cheetham AO

Deborah Cheetham AO is well known and much-loved as a composer and performer (even more so following the monumental achievement of ‘Eumeralla’ in 2019), but in this concert, Flinders Quartet present Cheetham’s new work for string quartet alongside Beethoven’s Op.131 as a pairing of great minds and visionaries. Both Cheetham and Beethoven have an innate sense of scale, humanity and the historical significance that art can present. Flinders Quartet could not resist programming Puccini’s ‘Crisantemi’ as an homage to Cheetham’s operatic prowess.

‘The intimacy of the string quartet is like no other relationship in music. Whether in agreement or furious debate, the potential for elevated understanding is advanced once the conversation begins. I am looking forward to my collaboration with the exceptionally gifted members of the Flinders Quartet.’ Yorta Yorta composer, Deborah Cheetham AO
