Event Details

SIBELIUS String Quartet No. 4 in D minor, Op. 56 Voces Intimae
ANDREW FORD Scherzo perpetuo* (Le Sculpteur Express film score)
BEETHOVEN String Quartet No. 14 in C sharp minor, Op. 131

*world premieres, commissioned by Flinders Quartet

The film Performance, featuring Beethoven’s Op. 131, brought this towering piece into focus for many first time chamber music fans. It gave us the idea of exploring music in film and how our emotions are more affected by what we hear, rather than what we see. Le Sculpteur Express is from the famous Corrick Collection at the National Film and Sound Archive. The audience will see this silent film twice during the concert, once with a score by Australia’s Andrew Ford and once with a score by Sweden’s Mattias Lysell. Add in the best know quartet by Sibelius, Voces Intimae, and we’re ready for action.

Violins Helen Ayres & Shane Chen
Viola Helen Ireland
Cello Zoe Knighton

Featured non-Australian music: Beethoven, Sibelius, Lysell
