Event Details

Returning to Melbourne Festival after its acclaimed debut last year, the Orava Quartet continues to astonish with its powerhouse performances. Music by Haydn, Shostakovich and Australian composer Ross Edwards shines in the hands of this exceptional young quartet.

Praised by the Sydney Morning Herald for their 'warmth of sound, sublime inner-voicing and spontaneity,’ The Orava String Quartet is emerging as one of Australia's most exciting chamber music ensembles.

Founded in 2007, The Orava String Quartet consists of brothers Daniel Kowalik (violin), Karol Kowalik (cello), and completed by David Dalseno (violin) and Thomas Chawner (viola).
