The Australian String Quartet launches its season with Beethoven, arguably the supreme master of the string quartet. His op 18 no 6 is a breakthrough work, the most forward-looking of his early quartets. In an all-Australian collaboration with the dynamic percussionist, Claire Edwardes, the ASQ present an exciting new commission by Matthew Hindson. Rounding out the program is the luscious first quartet of Robert Schumann alongside American minimalist, John Adams, in a selection of irresistibly funky dances.
Featured non-Australian music: Beethoven, Adams, Schumann
