Australian String Quartet & Arcadia Winds

18/02/2017 - 19/02/2017 Australian String Quartet & Arcadia Winds

In a refreshing pairing that links some of Australia’s greatest chamber music talent, the renowned Australian String Quartet (ASQ) team up with the award-winning Arcadia Winds for two unique concerts. For over 30 years the ASQ have brought their experience, vibrancy and distinct sound to unforgettable string quartet performances. Arcadia Winds are the new kids on the block, but already this young ensemble has been making a mark with its energetic, spontaneous and joyful performances. Now these nine accomplished musicians come together to perform an attention-grabbing repertoire that is rare and full of fun. From the beloved Britten Sinfonietta, Haydn String Quartet Op. 33 and Mozart Flute Quartet to works by Françaix, Smalley and Martinů, these concerts are a perfect way to experience the resonant blend of strings and winds.
