Flinders Quartet: Phantasy


This event takes place at Montsalvat


Flinders Quartet’s 2021 season opens with Phantasy at Montsalvat

All these pieces encapsulate the strength and flexibility of quartet playing. The different pieces that stretch across decades, touch almost every emotion possible.

Flinders Quartet is particularly drawn to the beautiful Romanze in the Mendelssohn, a movement with which you could draw comparisons to Beethoven with its dark passionate anguish before moving onto the more virtuosic Allegro Molto Vivace final movement. Pairing the lesser known works with Mendelssohn and Holst shows off the quality of our Australian composers.

Flinders Quartet is excited to be making music again, and they can’t think of a better way to start the year.
