Some forthcoming concerts featuring the Australian String Quartet:

Australian String Quartet - Turning Point

Australian String Quartet carries chamber music into the here and now with a journey of discovery.

Sourced in collaboration with Open House Melbourne and befitting the intimacy and immediacy of the form—ASQ reimagines the concert experience to celebrate a vanguard of composers whose responses to broader social and political concerns saw them transforming into agents of musical change.

Melding performance and discussion, ASQ explores the formative influence of Scarlatti, Beethoven and Bartok, performing movements that demonstrate positive disruption, alongside Philip Glass’ String Quartet no 3 Mishima in its entirety.
