Tickets: Adult $48 | Concession $30 | Student $25 | Child under 16 $17

Mozart’s String Quartet in C Major, K465, nicknamed ‘Dissonance’ was written between 1782 and 1785 and is the last one in a set of six quartets, dedicated to Joseph Haydn. Testament by Lebanese-Armenian Tigran Mansurian is a five-minute Lento, written in 2004 as a tribute to ECM Records-founder and producer Manfred Eicher. Australian composer Alice Chance is becoming well-known and her piece is a new commission for string quartet. Debussy’s String Quartet, written in 1893, has become one of the most beloved pieces in the string quartet repertoire.

Program:

  • Wolfgang Amadeus MOZART | String Quartet No. 19 K465 ‘Dissonance
  • Tigran MANSURIAN | Testament
  • Alice CHANCE | A Sundried Quartet
  • Claude DEBUSSY | String Quartet

“Acacia Quartet performed so well that at times they seem like only one instrument, such is their clarity and unison.”
