Event Details

For thirty years the Tokyo String Quartet (Martin Beaver, Kikuei Ikeda, Kazuhide Isomura, Clive Greensmith) has been universally regarded as one of the supreme chamber ensembles of the world. The Quartet performs two classic programs on this tour, one pairing Haydn with Brahms, the other Beethoven with Mendelssohn. Each pair is contrasted with Carl Vine’s fifth string quartet, commissioned for Musica Viva by its Patron, Kenneth Tribe AC.

Featured non-Australian music: Beethoven, Wolf, Mendelssohn
