Flinders Quartet performs works by Schubert and Richard Mills in Death and the Maiden
Flinders Quartet’s Schubert year continues with Death and the Maiden, performing a Richard Mills’ delightful ‘Glimpses from my book of Dada’, Calvin Bowman’s arrangements of a selection of songs from ‘Winterreise’, and Schubert’s incredible ‘Death and the Maiden’ quartet.
Each of the works in this concert program tell vivid, fantastical stories. From latte drinking airheads to a little girl having a conversation with Death, the myriad of colours produced by the string quartet are the perfect narrative tool. Calvin Bowman re-imagines Schubert’s seminal work ‘Winterreise’ with these colours in mind, celebrating Schubert’s ongoing relevance and influence in 21st century Australia.
