Quartz: Dvorak’s America Quintet

December 16, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

$30 – $37

A performance sure to delight both first time and seasoned listeners.

Acclaimed Melbourne string quartet Quartz are a confluence of Australian musical talent and outstanding technique, performing sensitive interpretations of great masterpieces that are both innovative and unique.

Beginning with Dvořák’s America, a work of great beauty that is rarely performed. The added depth and sonority of a second viola will undoubtedly heighten the performance of this piece, adding a unique richness.

Quartz carries through to Mendelssohn’s Four Pieces for String Quartet, a collection of individual movements written throughout his life, each showcasing compositional mastery and lightness of touch. The four movements have contrasting moods and evocations yet tie together seamlessly into a work revealing Mendelssohn’s premier qualities: passion, tenderness and civilised wit.
