Event Details

Australia Quartet celebrates Halloween 2013 with a one-night-only concert on Thursday 31 October at Sydney Opera House. TRANSFIGURED NIGHT, Schoenberg’s gothic masterpiece anchors a remarkable program which includes a world premiere and performance by internationally renowned Australian composer, Elena Kats-Chernin. In a unique collaboration, Kats-Chernin will perform alongside the Australia Quartet’s Tamara-Anna Cislowska in four hands at the piano, to transform and improvise her new arrangement of Scherzino (2013), written especially for the Australia Quartet. In keeping with their commitment to support contemporary Australian composers, the Quartet will perform Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night) in a new arrangement by Sydney-based composer, Barton Staggs, and conclude with a landmark chamber work, Schumann’s ever-popular Piano Quartet in E flat major, op.47.

Featured non-Australian music: Schoenberg, Schumann
