Product details

If you doubted that the string quartet is alive and well in Australia, this CD should reassure you.
Four marvellous works by Melbourne composers are presented here in superb performances by the Ormond Quartet, resident at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music between 2016 and 2018. Lotte Betts-Dean joins the quartet for the performance of Katy Abbott's work.
Listening to this fascinating music you'll be wondering why it is not more often heard, and not more often recorded.

Duration: 77 min.

Liner notes include programme notes and biographical notes about the performers and composers.
