QUARTZ “Modern Inventions”
30 July @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm AEST$29 – $39
Quartz is a fresh and exciting ensemble on the Australian music scene. It unites four highly acclaimed Melbourne musicians – Kathryn Taylor and Philippa West (violin), Merewyn Bramble (viola) and Zoe Wallace (cello).
These vibrant musicians give their programs an innovative edge and unique appeal by combining classic string quartet repertoire alongside lesser known works, including collaborations with artists such as Caroline Almonte, Marshall McGuire, Nick Dinopolous and Sally-Anne Russell.
Quartz recorded for the Tall Poppies label and quickly enjoyed success on the concert stage, having performed regularly in the Melbourne Recital Centre’s ‘Local Heroes’ series since 2013.
Join us for this exciting program as we explore three celebrated modern composers’ first steps into the vast and colourful world of String Quartet composition.
- Charles Ives String Quartet No. 1: From the Salvation Army
- Philip Glass String Quartet No. 1 Company
- Sergei Prokofiev String Quartet No. 1 in B minor Op. 50
