Acacia Quartet Presents 4 + Viola!
8 July @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm AEST
Acacia Quartet has the pleasure of being able to present another program of viola quintets with international viola soloist Emile Cantor. The program will feature the Australian piece Boomi’s Ray by Nick Wales, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s wonderful, but dark and melancholic String Quintet in G minor, K516 and Antonín Dvorák’s String Quintet Op. 97 which he wrote during his summer vacation in Spillville, Iowa, just after his famous American quartet.
