Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Affinity Quartet
The next generation of Australia’s chamber music stars.
About the artists
Affinity Quartet represents the next generation of Australia’s chamber music stars, having developed its craft in Europe to critical acclaim. It brings home an inspired approach to music-making, matched by its adventurous spirit as a string quartet for and of today.
About the concert
‘I love the way some music suddenly takes you to the other side of Alice’s looking glass, in a kind of absurd, subtle, technicolour transition.’ These words by composer Caroline Shaw describe the inspiration for Entr’acte, Affinity Quartet’s opening composition. Following is Haydn String Quartet Op.76/4 ‘Sunrise’ and finishing with Hungarian composer Bartók String Quartet No.4.
An eclectic and exciting program that will captivate audiences from beginning to end.
Praise for Affinity Quartet
‘[Affinity Quartet] has a collective wisdom and maturity which is singularly impressive … a musical force with which to be reckoned.’ Richard Gill AO
