Following their memorable, gut-wrenching 2018 performance of Shostakovich’s String Quartet No.8 – which features on their highly acclaimed debut album – the Orava Quartet returns with the composer’s happier sixth string quartet. A more light-hearted and melodic string quartet, yet clearly a harbinger for the eighth.
Soothing and brightening our moods, the Oravas open with Mozart’s first string quartet, written at the tender age of fourteen while touring in Italy. This is followed by the exquisitely meditative, neo-classical Schlusshymne by renowned Australian composer, Luke Howard.
A concert of music akin to sunshine breaking through clouds, performed by Orava Quartet, proudly in their seventh year as Quartet-in-Residence with Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra.
