Home / About
Since 1985, the Australian String Quartet (ASQ) has created unforgettable string quartet performances for audiences around the world.
Dedicated to musical excellence of the highest standard, we aim to create chemistry and amplify intimacy through experiences that connect people with music.
From our home base at the University of Adelaide’s Elder Conservatorium of Music, we reach out across the world to engage people with an outstanding program of performances, workshops, digital content, commissions and education projects.
Our distinct sound is enhanced by a matched set of 18th century Guadagnini instruments, handcrafted by Giovanni Battista Guadagnini between c.1743 and 1784 in Turin and Piacenza, Italy. These precious instruments are on loan for our exclusive use through the generosity of UKARIA.

The Australian String Quartet acknowledge the Traditional Custodians and Owners of the lands on which we work and live across Australia.
