Australian String Quartet with William Barton
More than just an ordinary concert, Quartet & Country is a much loved project of the Australian String Quartet (ASQ) – one that seeks to find common ground between Western art music and the songlines of this country. A multi-faceted event comprising two concert programs of top Australian composers and a Q&A session, it celebrates new Australian music written and performed by some of the country’s leading voices including Lou Bennett and Stephen Pigram (4pm concert), William Barton (6pm concert) and the ASQ.
String Quartet No.11 ‘Jabiru Dreaming’
New Work for String Quartet and Didjeridoo
