About the artists

Penny Quartet have gained a reputation as an ambitious and multifaceted voice in Australian chamber music. Driven by a love of core repertoire alongside new and different works, they have become renowned for high energy performances paired with a creative, diverse and mindful approach to programming.

About the concert

Beethoven’s mammoth String Quartet No.7 contains some of his most sublime themes. It is a piece that has the ability to surprise and delight, subverting expectations with heightened drama and technical difficulty.

Finishing with a string quartet by legendary Dutch composer Louis Andriessen. The piece is based on Allegri’s 17th-century choral masterpiece Miserere and explores form and structure from every angle. Together these quartets are a perfect pair, enchanting and astonishing the listener.
