Over a thirty-two year period, the Australian String Quartet has established itself as an Australian chamber ensemble of excellence, performing at the highest international level. Resident at the University of Adelaide, the quartet presents a vibrant annual artistic program across Australia and abroad.
The quartet members – Dale Barltrop (violin), Francesca Hiew (violin), Stephen King (viola) and Sharon Grigoryan (‘cello) – are musicians of exceptional calibre, with extensive experience in orchestral and solo roles.
Their programme travels across time, with works by composers of different eras expressing the noblest of feelings. It begins with the Baroque sophistication of Scarlatti’s graceful sonata. Romantic lushness heightens the exquisite tenderness of Puccini’s Crisantemi. Mozart’s string quartet has charm and delicacy expressed with Classical elegance. While Schubert’s Rosamunde is one of the great Classical string quartets with its poignant lyricism and haunting emotions.
- Scarlatti, A Sonata a quattro no 4 in D minor
