A sublime home-coming
The Australian String Quartet’s relationship with UKARIA extends beyond ensemble and venue; across the world, a shared bond ripples through every note we play. Custodians of UKARIA’s matched set of sublime Guadagnini instruments, we return with them for four transcendent home-coming concerts across this annual series of events.
Come and hear these instruments truly sing, in the venue that was built especially for this very kind of music. Treat yourself to Devonshire Tea before joining us in the concert hall.
DUTILLEUX Ainsa la Nuit
BEETHOVEN String Quartet in C sharp minor op 131
Beethoven’s String Quartet in C sharp minor Op 131 is a towering work, revered for its breadth and originality. Paired with this work is the one and only string quartet of Henri Dutilleux, Ainsi la Nuit. Much like Beethoven’s Op 131, Dutilleux’s contribution to the genre is breathtakingly exquisite and full of surprise.
