Flinders Quartet: Death & the Maiden

1 October @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm AEDT

Tickets: Standard $45 ($35 Concession)

Flinders Quartet is instantly recognisable as one of Australia’s most loved chamber ensembles.
A quartet for the 21st century, Flinders continues its second decade with acknowledged musical skill and maturity. Their dynamic and stirring performances of broad repertoire have earned them high praise from both audiences and critics with the Quartet now a highly respected force in Australian chamber music.

Program:
Richard Mills – String Quartet No.4 ‘Glimpses from my book of Dada’
Franz Schubert – ‘Winterreise’ (a selection) arranged for string quartet by Calvin Bowman
Franz Schubert – Schubert String Quartet in D minor D.810 ‘Death and the Maiden’

Each of the works in this program tell vivid and wondrous stories. Schubert’s Death & the Maiden is a masterwork among quartets. Using the theme from his original song in which a terror-stricken maiden begs death to pass her by, Schubert builds variations upon it creating a pattern where the dark and powerful opening is met by the soft lyrical reply of the maiden. Calvin Bowman re-imagines another seminal Schubert work Winterreise and the Quartet performs the 2010 commission by Richard Mills dedicated to their 10th anniversary, String Quartet No.4 Glimpses from my book of Dada.
