Vision String Quartet | Spectrum

‘… amazingly vivacious, vivid and electrifying… the Vision String Quartet seem to be completely fearless.’
– Der Tagesspiegel
The Vision String Quartet has opened new vistas for the genre. Their ground-breaking performances of Schubert in complete darkness and Beethoven from memory announced a quartet of fierce rigour and – yes – vision. This anything-but-foursquare quartet has performed on the world’s most prestigious stages, including the Berlin Philharmonie, the Leipzig Gewandhaus, Oji Hall in Tokyo, and the Philharmonie Luxembourg. Beyond the standard repertoire, they seek new possibilities.
On their album Spectrum the cello morphs into an electric bass, violas and violins sometimes become ukuleles and guitars, and together they summon an imaginary drum kit. These sonic transformations are infused with harmonies and rhythms from folk and pop. For us, they perform their favourite pieces from Spectrum alongside new works, possibly composed en route to UKARIA. This is their final concert after a national tour for Musica Viva Australia and your only opportunity to hear them perform this program on this tour.
