Event Details

Webern Fünf Sätze for String Quartet op 5
String Quartet in C Major op 20 no 2
Joe Chindamo String Quartet no 1, Tempesta
Mendelssohn  String Quartet no 6 in F minor op 80

Webern managed to condense a lifetime of thoughts into these five succinct and beautifully crafted gems that seem to disappear right before our ears.  Haydn’s early quartet from op 20 counters this with well-balanced classical logic and stark beauty. The fresh and quick-fire new style in Australian composer/pianist Joe Chindamo’s Tempesta, is a world away from the palpable anguish and heart-torn emotion in Mendelssohn’s final quartet, written in despair following the death of his sister Fanny.  It was to be his last quartet.

Featured non-Australian music: Webern, Haydn, Mendelssohn
